Clarify: Revolution, turn

Mathematicians Toolbox Strategy: Draw a diagram and prior knowledge, Work backwards.

Solve: To solve the first part of the question we thought about clocks and a saying that we Learnt from a friend. Also we looked at the picture and that helped us to. In the end we decided that it would turn anti clockwise. And for the next part of the question we 9 because we counted all of the little spirals
