me: i found how to order pizza online

friend: nice

[talking about Saw movies for a bit]

me: anyways, pizza, online, i must order it

friend: okie

me: you're in school, figure this out

friend: what? look it up?

me: what's the area of a 12" pizza, minus the area of a 14" pizza

friend: woah

me: how do you get the area of a circle?

friend: idk geometry man D:

im learning it now

me: :/

so you don't know about circles?

friend: not really...

me: lame

i'll ask google

area = pi * radius ^ 2

so the radius of a 12" pizza would be 6

friend: yep yep

ik radius :D

me: 113.09 = 12" pizza area

153.93 = 14" pizza area

friend: woah. mk

me: so in percentage, how much bigger is 14" pizza?

friend: why are you trying to figure this out?

oh

uhmmmmmmmmmmm

me: to see if large pizza is worth the increased price

we're doing math to order pizza

friend: wow, nice

idk how to figure this out tho D:

me: ok, so 14" pizza is 36% bigger than 12" pizza

its actually easy

friend: thats worth it then

me: 14"/12"

friend: sry, im looking at game trailers

me: well no, we gotta look at price now

friend: oh okay...

me: so 14" pizza is 21.99, and 12" pizza is 17.99

which means 14" pizza costs 22% more than 12" pizza, but provides 36% more pizza

so, large pizza is a better deal

yay math!

friend: hooray

me: this is why you need geometry and algebra

other maths, not so much

friend: haha

me: now to figure out how many to buy...

cause first pizza is regular price, but after that is 6$

this is not so much a math problem, but a how much do i want to spent vs how much my fridge can handle

... and how long do i wanna eat pizza

friend: lol

me: 2 is probably good

hmm... i found other sales

friend: haha

me: this is why i want to order pizza online

you do this over the phone and they hang up

friend: haha

me: i find the awesome sale! 20$ off!

friend: NICE!

So pizza shows up and I share my excitement with the delivery guy that I can order pizza online. He says 'Oh yeah? I've tried to do it before but it always says its not available', I then share with him the alternate website. Taking my pizza inside I discover the web address in nice big text on the front of the box... whatever, I have my pizza ^^
