In school, everyone wonders if certain math lessons will ever be used in the real world and frankly, many of them aren’t, but there are some that aren’t just used, they can blow your mind. That’s exactly what happened this week thanks to the Fermat’s Library Twitter account, which has blown everyone’s mind by proving that one 18 inch pizza is more pizza than two 12 inch ‘zas.
Using simple geometry, the case is quickly made to always opt for a large instead of two mediums. You might remember that the area of a circle is the radius squared multiplied by pi (3.1615). Well the radius of an 18-incher is of course nine, nine squared is 81, and 81 times pi is 254. Compare that to two 12 inch pizzas, which have a combined area of just 226 square inches.
Here's a useful counterintuitive fact: one 18 inch pizza has more 'pizza' than two 12 inch pizzas pic.twitter.com/hePSpG0pJs
