A street that is 146 m long is covered in snow. City workers are using a snowplow to clear the street. The snowplow has tires that are 1.3 m in diameter. How many times does a tire have to turn in traveling the length of the street? Use the value 3.14 for π . Round your answer to the nearest tenth. Do not round any intermediate steps.
