Good Morning, everyone! Today is a very special day because, as you can see, we have pizza! But, I have a challenge for you. . . you must cut this into 24 congruent slices. Can you do it?
YEAH! We're ready!
Yes! That is correct!
Ms. Candalino! Don't we have to find the horizontal and verticle diameters of the pizza first? Like this?
That only divides the pizza into four sections. . . I've got it! Since the measure of the central angle of a circle is equal to the measure of its corresponding arc, each arc and central angle have to equal 15 degrees.
That is correct! Good job, guys!
Yeah! She's right! 360 degrees divided by 24 slices of pizza equals 15 degrees per slice. Since we already have two diameters, just cut 22 more in different directions until we reach 24 slices!
YAY! Pizza! We love pizza and geometry! You're the best, Ms. Candalino!
