    well u first of all know that distance = velocity x time, which means time is = 480/60 meaning u were driving for 12 hrs

    now u take 480 miles times 2580 feet times 12 inches to get 14860800 inches traveled and divide by the diameter times pie gives u the number of rotations

    which is a big number that u can get with your calculator, so just remember u divide the distance traveled divided by the circumference of the circle which is pie times the diameter, and ya my bad it is 8
