When shopping you often gather comparison data to get the best deal. Consider buying pizza. These are just some of the questions you may want to consider when buying pizza: * What is the best pizza deal in your area?

* How do you conduct comparative shopping when different pizza stores have different size pans? * Are prices for some large pizzas for a particular store proportional to the amount of pizza for each size? * Does any combination of two pan sizes give a better buy than a larger pan size? * Is pizza available in any shape besides circles? If so, what are the advantages and disadvantages of these shapes from a marketing viewpoint? From a consumer viewpoint, collect data from two of your favorite pizza restaurants in the following four areas: 1. Collect statistics in

* pan sizes
* prices
* topping options

To begin your research, answer the following questions:
2. Compare cost per square inch of pizza for each pan size offered by a restaurant. 3. Compare cost per square inch of pizza with customer-chosen toppings versus store established combinations of toppings. 4. Compare cost per square inch of pizza for small, medium, and large pizzas for these two restaurants.

Note:
Use the following formulas:
Area of circle: A=πr2 which is pi x radius x radius
Area of a rectangle: A=lw which is length x width
