Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0314 (putting pi as 3.14)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1don't replace pi with 3.14, leave pi as it is

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no it would just be 100pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1think of pi as a variable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now apparently, they didn't square the 10 to get 100 they left it as 10^2 so we'll have (10)^2*pi as part of the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1`pi*(10)^2` is the area of the WHOLE circle we just want that pizza slice to get the area of that slice, we multiply by 37/360

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\Large \pi*(10)^2\times\frac{37}{360} = \frac{\pi\times(10)^2\times37}{360}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1example: say the angle is 90 degrees 90/360 = 1/4 so we take a quarter of the full area to get the slice area
