angular velocity physics question PLEASE HELP??

Dart hits wheel. In terms of m, M, v0, and R (of wheel), find:
 
A) angular speed of wheel
B) ratios of initial and final kinetic energies

Is there any more information for this question? I am specifically looking for how the dart hits the wheel, but I also need to know what the variables m, M, and v0 stand for?

dart hits the exterior of hte wheel causing it to rotate...it's resting on  horizontal surface and has no friction. m is mass idk what M is and v0 in initial velocity. i'm assuming M is angular velocity...?

Perhaps m is the mass of the dart and M is the mass of the wheel?
