:nerd: or just smart decision making? (1 Viewer)

I thought this was bumped with someone questioning if it was really "girlfriends" mrs. madcow was going out with it and not the facebook ex-bf.

 
I think I'd decide based on calories.

XLarge is 3072, 2 Mediums is 3328.*

There would still be some slight math involved, but at least I could let the dominos nutrition chart do most of the work for me.

*I used hand tossed and pepperoni to calculate the numbers.

I didn't do the quick math based on the prices, but since they were $1 different (I think not on that page right now) it's probably close enough to a wash.

 
So I am calling Domino's to take home a pizza and some cheesy sticks (wife is going out with some girl friends so it is me, my son, and my 2 daughters that have strep throat tonight).  They tell me their specials, of which one is 2 medium 1-toppings and a bread for $14.99.  They also have their XLP 1-topping for $9.99, with cheese sticks being $3.99.

So the :shark: in me immediately asks for the diameter of each pizza, I do a little pi X radius squared and figure out the most pizza per buck spent.

And no, there are not ANY good mom and pop pizza joints within 10 miles of where I live, so spare the "Good pizza down" comments. :loco:

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>
2 x 12" is 24" of pizza for $14.99

1 x 16" pizza for 9.99. I think they are about equal. except you get the bread with the other pizza. 2 for deal sounds better but hey don't trust a Cane bra'
Staff. Quality.

His math skills will be a valuable asset.
 
22/7 x 36 = 113.14 for the 12 inch pizzas...

22/7 x 64 = 201.14 for the 16 inch pizza.

113.14 x 2 = 226.28 for the  12" pizzas

201.14 for the 16 inch pizza. 

The 2 for 1 deal is a better deal as I said uptop but here's the spelled out math requested.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Not when you consider it is $1 more for the 2, AND crust enters into the equation, as well.

Excellent point MC
God, he was doing it even then. :facepalm:

Thank you for your consideration :confused:

To give him credit, he does better with larger numbers, like blood alcohol level for example.
 
Man, reading the first page of this, seeing it talk about my 21-month old daughter who is now over 6 yrs old. Where does the time go?

 
And by the way, Pi isn't the right ratio anyway. We should be using Tau, which is the circumference / radius. Much more natural results, especially in trigonometric applications.

The Tau Manifesto - for true math geeks only

 
Did anyone point out that while Shick's math was correct, he failed reading comprehension? He neglected to account for the cheesy sticks, and therefore made an incorrect calculation, all while lecturing MoP.

It took MoP a few tries but eventually he came up with numbers that were somewhat accurate. That kind of sticktoitiveness and can-do attitude is commendable.

MOP alias?
 
1. I don't think I can get you any more irritated than you must be already since you have stopped responding to all my PMs.2. Why would I want to take potshots at you since in general I like your posts even when we disagree? You have always been a favorite poster of mine...well you were anyways.3. You have the ability to suspend me from the FBG boards and since I like surfing on this site and enjoy the threads in both the Shark Pool and the FFA...why would I want to cut my nose off to spite my face?Now is 22/7 = to Pi...yes or no?

I hope to God you're kidding.

What is there to explain?

24 divided by 14.99 on my calculator is 1.6

16 divided by 9.99 on my calculator is 1.6

Seem to be about equal except you get bread with the 2 for 1 deal...now who has the bad math here?
I'm setting my fantasy lineup based on this guy's math :thumbup:
:lmao: :lmao:

I'll second this post, or at least square it as long as it doesn't defy the order of operations.

hint: You don't get a straight line of pizza. It comes in a circle.

I was trying to keep it simple for the Buckeye fans...

I know there is a big trig equation attached to this but let's just try and keep it simple. 24" for 14.99 and 16" for 9.99 ;)
:lmao:
 
Now is 22/7 = to Pi...yes or no?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Why are so fixated on this? No. 22/7 is not Pi. Its a close approximation, but it's not Pi. That said, this has nothing to do with why your logic is flawed.What constitutes a better deal? If not price per square inch, then what? How do you define "better deal"?
Frankly in defefernce to the MOP it is you are coming off like a condescending ##### with strange and bizarre unprovoked attacks and attempts at belittling someone who is taking an intrest in a topic you teach.

When we grew up and went to school, there were certain teachers who would hurt the children anyway they could

by pouring their derision upon anything we did

exposing every weakness however carefully hidden by the kids.
I sure hope you don't treat your kids like this, though I'm guessing it's just symptomatic of burnout. Honestly out of a usually levelheaded poster it's kind of a red flag.
