A cable car travels by clamping onto a steel cable that circulates in a channel beneath the streets. The cable is driven by a large 10-foot-diameter pulley, called a sheave. The sheave turns at a rate of 17 revolutions per minute. Find the speed of the cable car, in miles per hour, by determining the linear velocity of the cable. (round to nearest hundredth of a miles)
