Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Very bad question. FAR too subjective. Measure the radial width of the crust vs. the total radius.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is the radius of this pizza, or the diameter

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is 16 inches diameter

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0medium is 12 inches diameter

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and we need to cut off the top

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we can make a crude approximation we have an isosceles triangle

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Area of crust cut off = total area of sector  area of isosceles triangle

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Area of sector = 1/6 * π r^2 , since we have 6 slices

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Area of isosceles triangle, this is going to be an equilateral triangle , since the vertex angle is 360/6 = 60 , and the base angles are congruent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can pick any of the 6 triangles, i just chose that one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the diameter is 16

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry, diameter is twice the radius

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the area of crust cut off is 26.48.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Area of crust cut off = total area of sector  area of isosceles triangle A= 1/6*pi(8)^2  60

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whats the formula for the area of an equilateral triangle with side `a` https://www.google.com/search?q=area+of+equilateral+triangle&ie=utf8&oe=utf8

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A= 1/6*pi(8)^2  √(3)/ 4 (8)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the area of the segment cut off is 5.8

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, but note that this an approximation, since a pizza crust can sometimes be thick We solved the 'ideal' problem

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this is what we found exactly http://prntscr.com/7a5bjm

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so that cut approximates removing the crust

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find the isosceles, why did u divide 360/6

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since the triangle is 180

perl
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we have 6 angles, that add up to 360 degrees (in the center)

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so thats how you get the vertex angle of a single triangle. then the base angles, you can use the fact that the triangle is isosceles (since the sides are the radius)

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the sides have the radius then it is isosceles

perl
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes because all the radii are congruent

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why are we using the equilateral triangle formula, why can't we use isosceles

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh I got it. 60 is common

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this isosceles triangle is a special case, its also equilateral

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you should actually get infinite medals for this help

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is really understandable

perl
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the base angles of an isosecles triangle are congruent. Therefore we have 60 + x + x = 180 60 + 2x = 180 2x = 120 x = 120/6 = 60 Now you know its an equilateral triangle , since all the angles are congruent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I only need 5.8 answer. But, thanks for the work and made me understandable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am fully confident now
