The spoke of a wheel reaches from the center of the wheel to its rim implies that the spoke of the wheel is describes the radius to the wheel. The circumference of a circle is given by C = 2πr. i.e. 48 = 2 x 3.14r = 6.28r => r = 48 / 6.28 = 7.64 inches.Hope this helps. Let me know if you need additional help!
