    Compound machines consist of two or more simple machines put together to carry out difficult tasks.  One example of a compound machine is a bicycle. The wheels and pedals each form a separate wheel and axle system. The brakes and brake handles are levers, and the seat adjustment is a screw.

    Just to give you an idea of the difference between compound and simple machines.  There are six types of simple machines: a lever, a pulley, an inclined plane, a wheel and axle, a wedge and a screw.

    The internal combustion engine is a compouind machine. As is a steam engine, or any kind of engine. A boat could also be considered a compound machine. Any household appliance is a compound machine. As are many office materials like copiers, printers, even staplers and mechanical pencils are all compound machines
