 Question 317205: A round pizza, with a diameter of 14 inches, is cut into 12 equal slices. A square pizza, with side length 12 inches, is cut into 9 equal squares. Which pizza slice, sector or square,has the greatest area? How much greater is it?Answer by texttutoring(324)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First, find the area of the round pizza: A=Pi*r^2 A=Pi*(7)^2 A=49*Pi The area of a single slice would be 1/12 of the whole area: Aslice = 49*Pi/12 = 12.83 inches squared Now find the area of the square pizza: A=x^2 A=12^2 A=144 We are cutting it into 9 pieces, so to find the area of one piece: Aslice = 144/9 Aslice = 16 inches squared So the square slice is larger, by (16-12.83) 3.17 square inches.
