Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.210,000(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.
