A pizza has a diameter of 15 inches. If the pizza is cut into 6 equal pieces, what will be the area of each piece?
The formula for the area of a circle is: A = pi·r(squared).
Since the pizza has a diameter of 16 inches, it has a radius of 8 inches.
Solve: pi·8(Squared) and divide this answer by 6 to find the area of one slice of the pizza.
