## The area of two 12-inch pizzas is equal to 226 square inches. While the 18-inch pie will give you a bit more with 254 square inches of pizza explained Fermat's Library on Twitter.

Let's go straight to the heart of the matter: sharing a pizza with anyone can be dreadful. Who gets the larger slice? Who gets the last one? If these questions are important to you, go ahead and order two 12-inch pizzas and save yourself all the drama.

But if you are one of those who likes to share, ordering a single 18-inch pizza could mean more pizza in your stomach than two 12-inch pizzas combined. And you might also save a few bucks in the process.

How?

Sharing this counterintuitive fact on Twitter, Fermat's Library explained the math behind it.

The area of two 12-inch pizzas is equal to 226 square inches. While the 18-inch pie will give you a bit 'more' pizza with 254 square inches.

Did that blow your mind? People on Twitter scurried for their calculators to counter this.

New equations were born.

Others found flaws in this logic. If you are into crust, ordering two 12-inches pizza would give you 33.3% more crust than in an 18-inch pizza.

So which one are you going to order?
