    area of the large pizza is 113.04

    how do I work out which is best value for money?
    Large : 113.04 square inches of pizza costs £10
    Small : 38.465 square inches of pizza cost £4

    There are different ways to work out the better deal. One way is to work out how much 1 square inch of pizza costs for large/small then compare them.

    Can you try that?

    Actually it will be simpler if you work out how much pizza you can get for £1 for small and large.

    E.g. if a large pizza costs £5 and measures 120 square inches then £1 of pizza gives you 120 ÷ 5 = 24 square inches.

    Try this with your values and then see which deal gives you more for £1.

    £1 gives me 9.61625 from the small pizza
    £1 gives me 11.304 from the larger pizza

    The larger pizza is more cost efficient
