# If a Wheel Has Six Spokes Equally Spaced, Then Find the Measure of the Angle Between Two Adjacent Spokes. - Mathematics

If a wheel has six spokes equally spaced, then find the measure of the angle between two adjacent spokes.

#### Solution

It is given that the six spokes are equally spaced, thus, two adjacent spokes subtend equal angle at the centre of the wheel.

Let that angle measures x°

Also, the six spokes form a complete angle, that is, 360°

Therefore,

x + x+ x + x+ x+x = 360°

 6x = 360°

 x = (360°)/6

 x = 60°

Hence, the measure of the angle between two adjacent spokes measures 60°.
