 Posted by: liverlipsyyz ® 10/31/2007, 11:50:10 Author Profile eMail author Edit this is just a simple math question, i suppose, but i'm having a brain freeze. i am building a wheel of fortune from a bicycle wheel. i want to divide the wheel up in to equal pies but the spokes do not seem to be equally spaced. so, i am just going to use some poster board over the wheel spokes, cut a cirle from the poster board and divide that up in to pies. for some reason i am having trouble figuring out how to divide the wheel up in to equal pies so i can draw the lines properly. i don't want to have to buy some large compass or anything like that. any ideas?

 Posted by: randykimball ® 10/31/2007, 13:05:42 Author Profile eMail author Edit Giggle.... OK guys,....Take a tape measure and wrap it around the wheel. Get as accurate of a measurement as you can muster.Divide that measurement by the number of "slices" you want.Now take a marker and mark off at every "that answer" distance... hey now that was not so hard, huh?
