Two gears are connected and are rotating simultaneously. The smaller gear has a radius of 4 inches, and the larger gear has a radius of 7 inches.

Part 1: What is the angle measure, in degrees and rounded to the nearest tenth, through which the larger gear has rotated when the smaller gear has made one complete rotation?

Part 2: How many rotations will the smaller gear make during one complete rotation of the larger gear?

Show all work.

**Solution:-**

part(1)

perimeter of the smaller circle = 2π(4) = 8π

in one rotation of the smaller gear, arc created at larger gear = 8π

angle = *360

angle = *360

angel = 205.7 degree

part(2)

perimeter of larger gear = 2π*7 =14π

perimeter of smaller gear = 2π*4 = 8π

rotations make by smaller gear during one complete rotation of larger gear =

= 1.75 rotations.

Thanks. This answer really passed my test!
