A car weighs 8000 N. It has four wheels. Each tyre has a pressure of 20 N/CM2(cm squared).

If the weight is spread evenly, what is the weight supported by each tyre?

Please help me!

If the car weighs 8000 N and its weight is spread evenly over its four tires, each tire must be supporting 2000 N. The pressure of the tires was thrown in there just to confuse you!
