BTW, I get area=~95 Sq In for the large??
Check your calculator's batteries. I tried it again and got the same original figures.

I think the problem is your eating EZ's pizza, I would place it slightly above frozen pizza, but still below a hot and ready.

I strongly disagree. Plus, in general I would rather have a fresh brick-oven pizza over one that's been sitting "ready" under a lamp for an hour.

I never said hot and ready's were any good, I just said they were slightly better then Ez's. They are both terrible. At least IMO

I got 95 also.

pi (3.14) * r2 (5.5*5.5=30.25) = 95

$.09 sq in which stands to reason. Usually the larger is the better value.

Whoops! Sorry about that. (Sorry Pobre)

But as far as your second point, I would disagree. Yes, it is usually a better deal to go larger, but not quite with this magnitude.

Bottom line - scaling up from something is seldom nearly as expensive as doing it initially. Whether a large or small, the basic labor is about the same - so they're actually being VERY fair with their upsized prices, IMO.

And by the way....as someone that routinely runs calculations on surface area (when you treat water, most things you deal with are round - whether they're storage tanks or media vessels) - there's a MUCH easier calculation to run for determining the area of a circle:

D (squared) x .785 = surface area

LOTS faster, IMO!

I like it...I'll have to keep this handy for my middle schooler.
