my family bought a new cabinet and we were placing the top on the cabinet. this was proving difficult as the cabinet makers had not properly aligned the holes on the cabinet with the holes on the top. this lead me to comment that it's like fitting a "round peg in a square hole." there was some dispute concerning this comment. see the video below:

dude, didn't need google to remember that a if a circle and square had the same diameter, that the square's bigger than the circle. :)

One thing you might not know however, is that square cakes are harder to frost and decorate, than round cakes. Think about that one.

merry christmas!!! kisses and hugs for the new year!

happy new year!

hmm that's not exactly the problem. the problem is: suppose you have a circle. find the largest square that will fit inside. determine how much area of the circle is unused.

now do the same for a square. fit the largest circle possible inside. what percentage of area is unused?

i contend that it's not obvious which uses more percentage of area.

as to the cakes: why is that? i could make up dumb reasons but i just don't know!
