1. The answer would be 14 inches rounded.

Step-by-step explanation:

1. take the 5 1/2 inches and multiply that by 8. (What you get is you circumference.)

2. divide that by pi(Aka: 3.14….).That is your diameter.

Brainliest is appreciated.

14

Step-by-step explanation:

the edge of one slice of pizza is 5.5 and there are eight slices so i multiplied 5.5 by eight to get the circumference

the circumference is 44 so i divided that by pi to get the diameter which was 14 after you round

if your more of a numbers/formula person this might be more helpful:

circumference: 5.5 x 8 = 44

formula for diameter is so,
