Three friends, a mathematician, a physicist and an engineer, meet for dinner at a pizza place. The engineer arrives first and decides to order for everyone a 16″ stuffed crust pizza. The physicist arrives next and as the pizza is ready, states hating pizza crust and wishing to have as little as possible of that in his plate: but, he adds, I’ll pay 1/3 of the money, I want 1/3 of the area: that’s only fair. Right at this time the mathematician enters through the door. Discuss, in mathematical terms, the rest of the evening.
