Pizza is circular in shape and full circle is 360° so if we cut pizza in 6 pieces each angle would be `alpha_6=360/6=60^circ`

Similarly for 8 pieces we get `alpha_8=360/8=45^circ` and for 10 pieces `alpha_10=360/10=36^circ.`

``You can see how cuts would look like in case of 6 and 8 pieces on the images below.

As pizza is circular in shape ,the total angle made by it is 360 degree.

When we cut a pizza in 6 pieces the angle made would be 360/6 = 60 degree.

Similarly, if we Cut it into 8 pieces , the angle would be 360/8 = 45 degree.

likewise, If we cut it into 10 pieces it will make 360/10 = 36 degree.

A pizza has a shape of a circle. The angle around a dot/point is 360 degrees. Therefore the central point of a circle has an angle of 360 degrees. So, if a pizza is cut into 6 pieces that means to find the angle of a piece you should divide 360 by 6.

360/6 = 60 degrees. So, if the pizza is cut into 6 pieces each piece may have the angle of 60 degrees.

Likewise cutting pizza into 8 pizza will get each piece the angle of 45.

360/8 = 45 degrees.

And 10 pieces will get each piece the angle of 36 degrees.

360/10 = 36 degrees

Hope I helped. Wish you all the best!

A pizza is circular in shape which means it has a complete angle of 360. So if it is cut into 6 equal parts then angle of one part would be 360 divided by 6 = 60 

For 8 parts, 360 divided by 8 = 45

For 10 parts, 360 divided by 10= 36

A pizza is circle therefore cutting it in a number of pieces ,the sum of angle of each part results 360 degrees``

1. If a pizza is cut into 6 pieces then the pizza circle is assumed to be divided into
    6 Equal pieces.Then ,angle for each part will be 360/6=60 degrees.

2. Similarly, for 8 it would be 360/8 that is 45 degrees.

3. And for 10 it will be 360/10=36 degrees.
