Answer:961.625 ≈ 962

Step-by-step explanation:(A WHEEL IS A CIRCLE!)To find the area of a circle, you must multiply the radius by itself twice, then, multiply the product by pi

(radius x radius x pi).Here, only the diameter is shown.

To find the radius, we must divide the diameter by 2.

35 / 2 = 17.517.5 is the radius.17.5 x 17.5 = 306.25.**3.14 is commonly used for pi**Lastly, we multiply the product by pi.

306.25 x 3.14 = 961.625961.625 rounded to the nearest foot is 962.

Therefore, the area of the wheel is 962 feet.
