 Mathematics Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

The Northern Tier bicycle tour route from Anacortes, Washington, to Bar Harbor, Maine, is a 4,264.5 miles long. How many more revolutions over the entire route will a 16-inch diameter wheel on a bike trailer complete when compared with a 27-inch diameter wheel on a bicycle? Please show work and explain your process step by step and the reason why you took those steps.

Also... What's a revolution? I know I've heard of the American Revolution in my History class.. But I'm not sure in math...
