00:00:02.840 --> 00:00:06.440
Layla completes one-and-a-half somersaults in a dive.
00:00:08.040 --> 00:00:11.480
How many degrees does Layla turn through in her dive?
00:00:13.160 --> 00:00:15.360
We know that this is Layla’s start position.
00:00:17.240 --> 00:00:26.640
Then, Layla turns and she makes a series of turns until she’s facing the same way as she started.
00:00:27.920 --> 00:00:30.960
So Layla has completed one somersault.
00:00:32.360 --> 00:00:40.560
This was her start position and she made a series of turns until she was facing the same way as she started.
00:00:42.000 --> 00:00:47.920
So Layla has made a complete somersault or a full circle.
00:00:49.040 --> 00:00:53.960
And we know that a complete circle is 360 degrees.
00:00:55.200 --> 00:00:57.160
Then, Layla made a half somersault.
00:00:57.720 --> 00:01:01.000
She’s started off facing upwards.
00:01:02.080 --> 00:01:06.640
Then, she made two turns until she was facing downwards.
00:01:08.160 --> 00:01:14.760
So Layla’s half-somersault is the same as turning half a circle or 180 degrees.
00:01:15.800 --> 00:01:27.200
So to find out how many degrees Layla has turned through in her dive, we need to add together 360 and 180, which is one-and-a-half somersaults.
00:01:28.560 --> 00:01:33.040
Zero and zero give us a total of zero.
00:01:33.040 --> 00:01:34.760
Six and eight is 14.
00:01:35.800 --> 00:01:39.920
Three plus one plus the one we exchanged is a total of five.
00:01:41.080 --> 00:01:46.400
Altogether, Layla turned through 540 degrees in her dive.
