Question from kris, a parent:

a pizza company wishes to put 4 medium pizzas in a box to sell as a party pack. The box they want to use the square and has dimensions of 60cm by 60cm. They need you to help them calculate the dimensions of the pizza that will fit in the box. Calculate the following: area, radius, diameter, circumference

Hi Kris,

I expect they want to place the pizzas in the box as in my diagram.


What is the radius of each pizza?
