A pizza has a radius of 10 inches. A slice is removed. The length of the crust of the missing slice is 3 inches. What is the area of the missing slice?

Answers

The area of the missing slice is 15 inches ²

How to determine the area

From the information given, we can see that the pizza takes the form of a circle;

Area of the missing slice takes the shape of a triangle

Area of a triangle = 1/ 2 base × height

base = 10 inches

height = 3 inches

Area of missing slice = 1/ 2 × 10 × 3

Area = 1/ 2 × 30

Area = 15 inches ²

Thus, the area of the missing slice is 15 inches ²
