To calculate the price per square inch of Pizza, you will need to know the area if the pizza in square inches, and the price of the pizza.

For example, let's say you have a 12 inch pizza that cost 5 dollars. Pizzas are generally measured in diameter, so the diameter of the pizza is 12 inches, and the radius is half of that, or 6 inches.

The formula for the area of a circle is (1/2)(pi)(radius)2, which, in this case, is (1/2)(pi)(6 in)2, or about 56.5 in2.

We now know the area and the price. The formula for price per square inch is what is sounds like: (price)/(area in in2). In this case, it is (5)/(56.5), or about .089 dollars.

So this pizza costs about 9 cents per square inch.

### If a seven inch pizza cost 4.00 and the price of the 14 inch is proportional to the cost of the seven inch how much would the fourteen inch pizza cost?

The area of the pizza inceases as the square of the radius (or diameter). Assuming the thickness remains the same, then the volume also increases as the square of the radius. So, double radius implies quadruple area implies quadruple cost.

### If a pizzeria offers a 9 inch diameter pizza for 12 and a 18 inch diameter for 24. Are both offerings equally economical?

### How many more square inches are in a 14 inch pizza than in a 11 inch pizza?

I suggest you divide the 14 inches and the 11 inches by 2 to get the radius (presumably, the numbers refer to the diameter). Then you can calculate the area using the formula for a circle, and compare.
