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.

Area of total = pi (15/2)^{2}

1 slice is 1/6th of this 1/6 * pi (15/2)^{2} = ________ in^{2}

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