Enter the diameter of the pizza (in) into the Pizza Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pizza Area.

## Pizza Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Pizza Area.

PA = pi*(PD/2)^2

- Where PA is the Pizza Area (in^2)
- PD is the diameter of the pizza (in)

To calculate the pizza area, square half of the diameter, then multiply the result by pi.

## How to Calculate Pizza Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pizza Area.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the diameter of the pizza (in).
- The diameter of the pizza (in) is given as: 14.

- Finally, calculate the Pizza Area using the equation above:

PA = pi*(PD/2)^2

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

PA = pi*(14/2)^2 = 153.93 (in^2)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

diameter of the pizza (in) = 16

${V2} = ${number 4}

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

PA = pi*(PD/2)^2** = ?**
