Ok now, i know it says that i should show the work ive done on the question. Problem is, I have no idea where to start. So here is the question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Assume a cyclist of weightwcan exert a force on the pedals equal to 0.90won the average. If the pedals rotate in a circle of radius 18cm, the wheels have radius of 34cm, and the front and back sprockets on which the chain runs have 42 and 19 teeth, respectively, determine the maximum steepness of hill the cyclist can climb. Assume bike mass is 12kg and rider mass is 60 kg. Ignore friction.

If you could tell me where to start that would be great.
