#### Question 7:

A bicycle wheel makes four and a half turns. Find the number of right angles through which it turns.

#### Answer:

In one turn, the wheel of a bicycle covers 360Ëš.

If we express 360Ëš in right angles, we get:

$\frac{\mathrm{360\u02da}}{\mathrm{90\u02da}}$ = 4 right angles

Thus, in four and a half turns, the wheel will turn by (4 × 4.5) = 18 right angles

#### Page No 11.10:

#### Question 8:

Look at your watch face. Through how many right angles does the minute-hand moves between 8:00 O' clock and 10:30 O'clock?

#### Answer:

The time interval between 8:00 O'clock and 10:30 O'clock is 2.5 hours, i.e., two and a half hours.

In 1 hour, the minute hand turns by a complete angle, i.e., 360Ëš or 360Ëš/90Ëš = 4 right angles.

Thus, in 2.5 hours, the minute hand will turn by 2.5 × 4 = 10 right angles.

#### Page No 11.10:

#### Question 9:

If a bicycle wheel has 48 spokes, then find the angle between a pair of adjacent spokes.

#### Answer:
