10) a. A recipe for pizza dough says to use a 10 in. by 14 in. rectangular pan. Jake only has a circular pan with a 12 in. diameter. If Jake makes the pizza in his circular pan, will the crust be thicker or thinner? Explain.

b. Suppose Jake wants to make a round pizza that is exactly the same thickness as the 10 in. by 14 in. pizza in the recipe. What will the diameter of the pan have to be? Is Jake likey to find such a pan? Why or Why not?

I am so confused, please help me!

10a The pizza with the larger arera will have the thinner crust, because it has to be spread out more. Compare the areas.

10a. The pizza with the larger arera will have the thinner crust, because it has to be spread out more. Compare the areas.

10b. Require that the circular pan area be 140 square inches. Set 140 equal to (pi/4)D^2 and solve for D. Have you ever heard of a pizza pan of that size?
