Angle




From Geometry for Dummies:
  • If you cut a pizza into four big slices, each slice makes a 90° angle

  • If you cut a pizza into four big slices and then cut each of those slices in half, you get eight pieces, each of which makes a 45° angle

  • If you cut the original pizza into 12 slices, each slice makes a 30° angle

So 1/12 of a pizza is 30°, 1/8 is 45°, 1/4 is 90°, and so on.
The bigger the fraction of the pizza, the bigger the angle.
