Expert Answer:

Let n be the number of revolution a wheel makes in 10 sec.

The distance travelled by the wheel  in 10 sec is 3410 m
Therefore, n x  = 3410
rightwards double arrow n equals fraction numerator 3410 over denominator 2 πr end fraction equals fraction numerator 3410 cross times 7 over denominator 2 cross times 22 cross times 0.7 end fraction equals 775 space r e v o l u t i o n s
