# When placed in the box, a large pizza can be described as being "inscribed" in a square box. If the pizza is 1" thick, find the volume of the pizza, in cubic inches given the volume of the box is 324 cubic inches?

To find the volume of the pizza, we first need to find the area of the base of the pizza, which is the same as the area of the square box. The formula for the area of a square is side length squared. Since the pizza is inscribed in the box, the side length of the pizza is the same as the side length of the box. Therefore, we can find the side length of the pizza by taking the square root of the volume of the box (324 cubic inches).

[ \text{Side length of pizza} = \sqrt{324} = 18 \text{ inches} ]

Since the pizza is 1 inch thick, the volume of the pizza is the area of the base (which is a square) multiplied by the thickness.

[ \text{Volume of pizza} = \text{Area of base} \times \text{Thickness} ]

[ \text{Volume of pizza} = (18 \text{ inches})^2 \times 1 \text{ inch} ]

[ \text{Volume of pizza} = 18^2 \times 1 ]

[ \text{Volume of pizza} = 324 \text{ cubic inches} ]

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
