5.1 radians?

3. A flywheel with a diameter of 14 cm is rotating at a rate of 9 radians per second. What is the linear speed of a point on its rim, in centimeters per minute?

4.  When Brett and Will ride the carousel, Brett always selects a horse on the outside row, whereas Will prefers the row closest to the center. These rows are 20ft 10 in. and 12ft 5in. 
from the center, respectively. The angular speed of the carousel is 2.9 revolutions per minute. What is the difference, in miles per hour, in the linear speeds of Brett and Will?
