A narrow belt is used to drive a 20.00-cm diameter pulley from a 35.00-cm-diameter pulley. The centers of the two pulleys are 2.000 m apart. How long must the belt be if the pulleys rotate in the same direction? In opposite directions?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am sure the solution to this problem is very simple, but I just cannot seem to figure out how to even begin this problem.Any help would be appreciated.
