    Answer:

    115 .40 in²

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let the outer diameter of the bicycle wheel =D₀

    Let the inner diameter of the bicycle wheel = D₁

    D₀ = 26 inches, while  D₁ = 23 inches

    Area of tire around the wheel is equivalent to the difference between the area of the outer and inner diameters:

    Area of tire =  π x (D₀² – D₁²)/4—————————————————(1)

                       = 3.14 x (26²-23²)/4

                       = 3.14 x 147/4

                       =  115.395‬

                       ≈  115 .40 in²
