    Hint both the volume and surface area of the top are ….

    SPOILER ALERT!!!

    Solution for all our non-math-geek “Barney & Clyde” friends:

    Since the end (base) of a cylinder [=the cake] is a circle, the area of that circle [=top of the cake] is given by “pi” multiplied by the radius squared [= “pi” x “r” x “r”].

    Multiplying by the height of the cake we get the volume of the cylinder, er, cake: “height” multiplied by “pi” multiplied by “radius squared” [= “h” x “pi” x “r” x “r”]

    So, if both the radius and the height are one unit, then the above multiplication yields both the area and the volume equal to pi:

    Area of the top of the cake = “pi” x “r” x “r” = “pi” x 1 × 1 = “pi”

    Volume of the cake = “h” x “pi” x “r” x “r” = 1 x “pi” x 1 × 1 = “pi”

    Therefore, in this case, the cake is also pi!

    Brains can’t “hurt” no pain nerves in it. I am not Math but I got the gist of it. Since it is a cake measurement verse homophone of some dessert.

    And if you make a very flat, round, dough based “meal” loved by Italians with radius z and height a (hint – use pi, and expand the square as z.z… dont use z²)
