Right now, people on Twitter are losing their minds after an image went viral that uses fairly basic math to show that one large, 18-inch pizza is actually more total food than TWO 12-inch pizzas. And not just a little more food . . . it's a decent amount.
Here's a useful counterintuitive fact: one 18 inch pizza has more 'pizza' than two 12 inch pizzas
The 18-inch pizza is 254 square inches of pizza . . . while the two 12-inch pizzas add up to 226 square inches. But people are confused because, you know, two is supposed to be more than one.
Are you ready for a mindblowing revelation? If you're splitting pizza with friends, you'll technically get more bang for your buck by splitting one 18-inch pizza instead of ordering two 12-inch pizzas. It sounds counterintuitive, but Fermat's Library did the math: An 18-inch pizza has 254 square inches of "pizza," while two 12-inch pizzas only have about 226 square inches.
