    Well done - try this one for size:

    A vinyl record measures 32cm across. There is a 1cm margin round the edge and a centre label, which measures 10cm across. There are 30 grooves per cm. How far does the needle travel if the record is played from start to finish?

    Your needles travel in a straight line from rim to centre?

    I tihnk not, the needle is on a fixed arm, it's distance to the pivot remains the same.
