**[SOLVED] Ferris Wheel Problem! PLEASE HELP!**

## Homework Statement

The Ferris Wheel takes 29 seconds to make one revolution.

The diameter of this Ferris Wheel is forty feet.

The distance from the ground to the top of the Ferris Wheel is forty-five feet. (That means that the distance from the ground to the bottom of the Ferris Wheel is five feet).

From your starting position (A), it takes 11 seconds to reach the top(B).

What will your height above the ground be when you have ridden the Ferris Wheel for 21 seconds?

**Round the answer to the nearest whole number with units!**

I did this problem and got

**eleven feet**. Can ANYONE tell me if that is right or not?!
