7 Responses to Mind Blown: The Mathematical Volume of a Pizza is Pizza

That would be area, not volume.

you'll know it's volume when you reach high school.

But you don't times the depth when you are looking for the area so the above equation would be Pi.z.z rather than P.i.z.z.a

This conversation is the testament to our utter geekiness! :-) Even if it's a joke, the math must "add up". :-) And no one ever marks radius as "z" or depth as "a". That's just silly. ;-))))))

any variable can be substituted for any other as long as the value of the variable is clearly explained.

splendid! Variable letters where replaced for easy memorization.
V=A*h
V=pi * r^2 * h
V = pi * r * r * h
