    a. Calculate the area for both pans. The pan with the smaller area will have the thicker crust using the same amount of dough. Remember that the area of a circle = pi r^2 = 3.1416 * r^2.

    b. The area of the square pan = 10 * 14 = 140. Then
    you would use the folowing equation:

    3.1416 * r^2 = 140

    This should help you to come to your conclusions. Thanks for asking.
