if a pizza was cut into 6, 8, or 10 pieces, what would the angles be?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

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.
