Hello ww. I looked up "but" and found it is a conjunction and a preposition. For your last sentence, "The bowl has a nine inch radius." :)

Have a cookie and a very nice day!

    Caught me out! And -- for the edification of future readers -- in addition to conj. and prep., "but" can also be or 'be used as':
    • a noun "I'll take no but as an answer"
    • a pronoun "no one but has his fault..." (or, depending on your ed. of Shakespeare, "nobody but..."
    • an adverb "That's but a little tree."

    That should have been either 4.5 inch of radius or 9 inch of diameter ("nine inch *across*").
