Eating is a pleasure,it’s an emotion for many.So,people who loves food,and call themselves foodies never allows their food to be compromised.
Which order is the right amount?We’ll never know.How much should people order when they are in groups?How much to order with respect to individual capacity?
Ordering the right amount of food is tedious.It requires vague calculations though,where we often think and think the perfect amount to get for us.
Now,it seems ordering the right amount of food requires the right equation.Yes,you read that right.A mathematics calculation reveals the exact number of Pizzas to be ordered ,to satisfy everyone’s appetite.
Check this tweet by Fermat’s Library,which shows why we should be ordering an eighteen inch pizza instead of two twelve inch pizzas.
Here's a useful counterintuitive fact: one 18 inch pizza has more 'pizza' than two 12 inch pizzas pic.twitter.com/hePSpG0pJs

This sudden revelation left twitter divided between two opinions.Some is of the opinion that this proves how mathematics is important even in our daily lives and some are feeling not quite happy though.

But pizzas aren't 2-dimensional. What is the volume of a pizza with radius z and depth a?

3 x 12 inch pizzas means triple the choice in topics & more pizza than 1 x 18 inch pizza. Gotcha! 👍🏽 pic.twitter.com/l360Q9zs9t

Finally! I can now coherently explain to my 10 year-old why math is important in life: without math, you might unknowingly spend more for less pizza!

I mean YES! This is True. This is true in terms of Factually accurate. But if you have a party of lets say 4 people. Everyone getting 4 slices is gonna be a better party than everyone getting 2 slices that are "bigger"

I just inflicted this on my friend. She didn't believe me, she did the math, then she let out the most straight-from-the-soul "Ｎｏ" that I've ever heard.

So,believing it or doing the whole math now?
