Gosh I'm really rusty on my geometry. Can you give me an idea of how to go about this?

**MathMate**, Saturday, September 26, 2009 at 6:50pmIf they have the same thickness and the ingredients are proportional to the area, I would calculate the area of each.

For the rectangular pizza,

Ar=18*24=402 sq. inches

For the circular pizza,

Ac=π(24²)/4=452.4 sq. inches.

Make your pick before picking up the telephone.
