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 360
o
 in one turn. 
It can be written as 
 
 
 
 
 
 
360/90 = 4 right angles

We know that the time interval between 8: 00 O’ clock and 10: 30 O’ clock is two and half hours 
The minute hand turns 360
o 
in 1 hour  
360/90 = 4 right angles

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

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 360
o
 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.
