* Now I don't understand what they mean by slipping? Maybe it's an error in my book and what they meant to say was stopping, but maybe someone knows what they mean by slipping?!

without slipping is just assuming they continue to make a full rotation

I think they mean that you don't have to worry about wet roads and whatnot. The tires don't slip and therefore the equation is easier. 1 revolution of a wheel means that you've gone the distance of the circumference of the tire.

first find the circumference of the tire

10,000(circumference of the tire) = distance traveled. Since the circumference is in inches and they want the answers in miles, you'll have to convert the distance.
