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.

Area of total =   pi (15/2)2

1 slice is 1/6th of this      1/6 * pi (15/2)2 = ________ in2

I think you might have meant 16/2, and not 15/2, because the pizza has a diameter of 16, not 15, inches....

No.... I meant 15/2    THIS question says the pizza is 15 inches  .... not 16 inches.

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?
