    And to take it one step further, I'm sure you've ordered pizza for more than one person, correct? Maybe on a date?

    You've probably opted to order two 12-inch pizzas because, yeah two pizzas is OBVIOUSLY more than one pizza, and you were hungry...Well friend, I have some shocking news for you...

    This is proof that math is important:

    @fermatslibrary Finally! I can now coherently explain to my 10 year-old why math is important in life: without math, you might unknowingly spend more for less pizza!

    Now, you know:
