Everyday Geometry: Rims

To make this rim, a company had to cut ten circles for decoration and had to cut ten circular openings for the bolts — in other words, they had to make two decagons in the circles. The center of each little circle is a vertex of a regular decagon. They have to cut holes every 36º radially around the circles. Math, when will we ever use it?
