Pizza Exchange Rate

Calculator, Interesting, Investigation, Publisher, Flowing Data

This is a story about pizza and geometry. Roy Chandan ordered a 9-inch pizza, and the waiter brought him two 5-inch pizzas instead. Chandan was getting an inch for free, the waiter said.

The seller mistakenly assumed a linear increase in area with diameter. This is not the case.
