Q:
# A pizza parlor offers pizzas with diameters of 8 in, 10 in, and 12 in. find the area of each size pizza. round to the nearest tenth. if the pizzas cost $9, $12, and $18 respectively, which is the better buy

Accepted Solution

A:

Area od pizza, A = Pi*Diameter^2/4

A1 = Pi*8^2/4 = 50.27 in^2

A2 = Pi*10^2/4 = 78.54 in^2

A3 = Pi*12^2/4 = 113.10 in^2

Cost (C) per sq. in;

C1 = 50.27/9 = $5.59

C2 = 78.54/12 = $6.55

C3 = 113.10/18 = $6.28

The best buy is the first pizza with 8 in diameter as it costs the least per sq. inch.

A1 = Pi*8^2/4 = 50.27 in^2

A2 = Pi*10^2/4 = 78.54 in^2

A3 = Pi*12^2/4 = 113.10 in^2

Cost (C) per sq. in;

C1 = 50.27/9 = $5.59
