I need help on neighborhoods of functions:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

38. The owner of a pizza parlor says money is lost on a medium size pizza, which has a 14-inch diameter, if its area exceeds 176 square inches. Customers complain if the area is less than 132 square inches. What tolerance is allowed for the diameter? use 22/7 as an approximation for pi.

This is what I've got:

[tex]176<(22/7 \times 7^2)< 132[/tex]

What exactly does it mean by tolerance and I know that I'm missing a variable but I'm not sure where the variable goes.
