If a circle has a radius of 4 inches and it needs to be sliced into 16 equal parts, What is the area of each slice? ⚑ Flag

The area of the circle is 16pi.  16pi/16 = pi, so the area of each slice is just pi.

To solve this problem you first have to find the are of the whole cirlce. The area of a cricle is A=(pi)xradius^2. So you plug in 4 inches for the radius. and you get Area=pi*(4)^2.... Area=pi x 16. The exact ares for the circle is 16pi inches^2. You then divid the complete area (16pi) into the 16 slices. So the 16s will cancel out leaving pi as you final asnwer. So pi inches^2 or 3.14 inches^2 is your final answer

Well, first of all, the area of the circle would be determined by the formula: pi times the radius squared, which would be 16 pi square inches. So, if you wanted to divide your circle into 16 equal parts, you would divide 16 by 16, you would get 1, and if you multiply that by pi, you get just pi. The area of each slice would be pi. hope that helps
