Consider if you will a Papa John’s small pizza. It’s 9.5″ inches across, and will cost you £10.99. Their XXL pizza is 15.5″ inches across for £17.99

How much more pizza do you think you’ll get?

You remember *pi-r-squared* from school? If we calculate the area of each pizza we get 70 square inches for the small one and 188 square inches for the XXL. **That’s over 2.5 times as much pizza!**

Let’s put it another way, and suppose a single bite of pizza is 3 square inches. In that case, the small one is about 23 bites, but you’ll get 63 bites from the XXL pizza.

So there you go. Always get the bigger pizza. Unless you’re really not that hungry.
