Marty's Pizza Shop guarantees that their pizzas all have at least 75% of the surface area covered with toppings, with a crust of uniform width surrounding them. If you order their best seller – a circular pizza with a diameter of 16 inches – what is the maximum width you can expect to see for the crust?

A. 0.8 inches

B. 1.1 inches

C. 1.6 inches

D. 2.0 inches

E. 2.5 inches

Total Area = 8 * 8 * pi

Radius = 64 pi

Surface = .75 * 64 * pi = 48 pi

Radius of surface = 4 sqrt (3) ~ 6.8

Radius width = 8 - 6.8 = 1.2

Answer: B
