The area of the whole pizza is given by
This gives Area of each slice =
Now, replace the value of the diameter:
Area of slice = in^2
A circular pizza with a 16-inch diameter is cut into 12 equal slices. What is the are, in square inches, of each slice?
I got the answer 4/3(3.14) but the answer is 16/3(3.14).
So it looks like they just simplified the bottom but I didn't know how they did that.
