# Pizza For Thirty

Jack has invited all his drinking buddies to watch the game on his new state-of-the-art TV. Come half-time, he calls the local Pizza Parlor. The assistant tells him they have a special "Buy one, get one free" offer, so he asks for two of the largest pizzas they have. Given that one large pizza can be cut into approximately twelve slices, how can he possibly ensure that will be enough for thirty people?

### Hint

Read the question again.### Answer

Everyone will get at least one slice of pizza. The offer was "Buy one, get one free" therefore when Jack ordered two, he got two free, giving him four pizzas with a total of forty eight slices.Hide Hint Show Hint Hide Answer Show Answer

what if there was that limit 1 per customer thing that they never tell u about ... ppl would be fightin over the last 6 slices

that one is pretty easy...it's not really a teaser

This one was trickyicky!It was sooo tricky that I started frowning!!!

You might as well have asked: "Jack has six friends. How can jack ensure that everyone gets a pizza?" (Answer: Buy six pizzas).

I went with the mathmatical answer and woudl have cut the slices into halves. I think your answer is a bit of a stretch. But its a good idea all the same~

Pizza places don't just throw in extra pizzas, they discount your order!

tsk tsk tsk.

I liked it now ii'm hungry!!!!!

i thought that he bought one pizza and got another free already

I agree with katie4 good job

if he ordered 2 pizzas, they would count that as "buy 1, get 1 free". they would charge him for one, but not the other.

if he wanted 2 free pizzas, he'd have to order 4, but pay for only 2 of them.

interesting

I didn't really like this teaser.

As someone already pointed out, by ordering 2 pizzas, he's saying that that's how many pieces that he wants.

He will therefore receive 2 pizzas and pay for only one...

and why can a pizza only be cut in to 12 pieces?... cant you just cut the pieces smaller?

He ordered the "largest" pizza. Saying that a "large" pizza can be cut to 12 pcs doesn't necessarily imply that the ones he ordered are 12. I.E., there could be an extra large pizza that cuts into 16 pcs.
