Pizza delivery 2016-04-03
From Andrew:
Suppose you own a local pizza restaurant, Pizza with Pizzazz, and in order to compete with the big pizza chains in your area you are considering an advertising campaign offering customers a free pizza if their pizza is not delivered in 30 minutes or less. Even though your pizza restaurant is known for its fast and friendly delivery service, you are not sure if you can afford to give away too many pizzas for free. Looking over your past 12,421 pizza deliveries you find out 97% of the pizzas were delivered in 30 minutes or less.

Calculate the probability that all 100 randomly selected pizza deliveries will have been made in 30 minutes or less? Hint: Use the multiplication rule. (Round 4 decimals)

I'm really stumped on how exactly to do this problem. I don't need the answer just the steps broken down to show me how to get it! It would be gladly appreciated if you could help!

The last slice of pizza 2006-04-27
From Lori:
I have a pizza. The radius is 10 inches long.The pizza was cut into 16 equal slices. When one slice was left, my sister and I both wanted it, so we agreed to cut it in half, but I like the crust more than she does, so we decided to cut it the "other way." In other words, the two pieces would not be symmetrical. The inside piece would contain all topping, and the outer piece would contain some topping and some crust. How far up the radius from the center of the circle will I need to cut so we will both have an equal area of pizza?
