On a text book I find a question about circumference. Here is the question:

A hamster runs for 10 hours each night on a hamster wheel that is a 17-centimeter diameter and that the hamster rotates the wheel at a rate of about 25 rotations per minute. Determine how many kilometers the hamster can run in one night.

The circumference is 17cm x pi = 53.38 cm

10 hours x 60 mins/hour x 25 rotations/min x 53.38 cm/rotation x 1km/100000cm = 8.01 km
