Has anyone ever told you that you will have more pizza if you are splitting one 18-inch pizza instead of ordering two 12-inch pizzas? Well, Fermat's Library has made the biggest revelation of the century after he did the all the maths and proved that: An 18-inch pizza has 254 square inches of ‘pizza’, while two 12-inch pizzas only have about 226 square inches. The moment he dropped this bomb information on the internet, Twitterati lost it and called it the Great Pizza Conspiracy. While many found flaws in the maths, others started a different war all together about what is better- pizza or the crust. One Twitter user even came up with his own maths and challenged Fermat’s equation saying: If you like crust, this logic doesn't make sense. If you're getting a stuffed crust, then definitely go for two pizzas.
Here's a useful counterintuitive fact: one 18 inch pizza has more 'pizza' than two 12 inch pizzas pic.twitter.com/hePSpG0pJs— Fermat's Library (@fermatslibrary) January 7, 2019
Here’s what Twitterati is flooding the internet with-

3 x 12 inch pizzas means triple the choice in topics & more pizza than 1 x 18 inch pizza. Gotcha! 👍🏽 pic.twitter.com/l360Q9zs9t— #NHFTHR 👇🏽 (@NHFTHR) January 7, 2019
The general principle is:— Rational Walker (@rationalwalker) January 7, 2019
faced with the choice of having one big pizza whose diameter is α times the diameter of the small ones, or β small ones- choose the big one if α>sqrt(β).
In the private case above α=1.5>sqrt(β)≈1.41 => choose one big pizza. pic.twitter.com/DIAxVUoTui
