    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    what does that really mean, for every revolution I'll go ten inches further with the higher gear?

    No, you go 10.5 / 3.14 = 3.34 inches farther.

    Also, that assumes that your tires are 700 x 32c, which are 27" nominal diameter. Smaller tires will result in a smaller difference.
