The circumference that the wheel has is: 2 times Pi times rand that means that the circumference is 6 times Piwhich makes the final circumference 18.84and this is ONE revolutionThen, take the total distance covered from the wheel......which is 22619and divide it by the distance ONE revolution covers.22619 divided by 18.84and you SHOULD get the value for x...which should be 1,201?that is what i got
