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

Solution:

We know that the wheel of a bicycle covers 360o in one turn.

It can be written as

360/90 = 4 right angles

We know that in four and half turns the wheel turns by 4 (4.5) = 18 right angles

Hence, the number of right angles through which it turns is 18.

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

Solution:

We know that the time interval between 8: 00 Oâ€™ clock and 10: 30 Oâ€™ clock is two and half hours

The minute hand turns 360o in 1 hour

360/90 = 4 right angles

So in two and half hours the minute hand turns by 2.5 (4) = 10 right angles.

Hence, the minute hand turns by 10 right angles.

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

Solution:

The central angle in a bicycle is 360o which consists of 48 spokes.

So the angle between a pair of adjacent spokes = 360/48 = 7.5o

Hence, the angle between a pair of adjacent spokes is 7.5o.
