long is covered in snow. City workers are using a snowplow to clear the street. A tire on the snowplow has to turn

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
The street is 156m Long
We use the concept of circumference in this case whereby one successful turn is equal to 156/39
Circumference is given by Pi multiplied by the diameter.
letter the Diameter be x
Therefore the one turn = 3.14 * x
Thirty nine times of the above distance give us 156m
Therefore we can say
3.14x * 39 =156
122.46x = 156
Round of to the nearest tenth gives
The diameter is 1.3m
