    1. What distance has a given point on the rim travelled when it has made one revolution?
    2. How many seconds are there in a minute?

    If you have a radius of 1.47 m the circumference is π2.94.

    [tex] \frac{22 rev}{minute} \times \frac{minute}{60 seconds} \times \frac{2.94 \pi m}{rev}[/tex]
    should get you your answer. (Approximately 3)
