Say we have 3 pizzas with radius 6 cm, 8 cm and 10 cm. Is it possible to cut the pizzas into 3 portions with the same area?

    Am I missing something here? Pi*r^2/3 for each pizza no? Not sure if I'm understanding.

    So? What's to stop you from cutting them into regions of pi * r^2 /3?

    I think the question wants all the portions have to have the same area.

    Well that's impossible if they have a different radius right.
