Solution to the September Riddle “A man drives 10,000 miles per year in his car. He changes his tires around so that all 5 (including the spare) get an equal number of miles of wear. How many miles does each tire get?” is:
8,000 miles each tire. There are a couple ways to reach this answer. One way is 10,000 miles/5 tires = 2,000 miles. This means every 2,000 miles the tires needs to be rotated so that each tire gets 2,000 miles on each of the 4 wheels. So 2,000 miles x 4 wheels= 8,000. So all 5 tires are driven for 8,000 miles. Another method is 10,000 miles x 4/5= 8,000 miles.
