Pumpkin pie

Have some pumpkin pie. One-half of the pie is cut into four equal slices. The other half is cut into three equal slices. After eating one of the larger slices (on the three-piece side), I wonder if I will eat more if I have one more from the three sides or two from the four sides.

Correct answer:

e1 =  1/6
e2 =  1/4
x =  4

Step-by-step explanation:

e1=21 31=2 31 1=61=0.1667
e2=21 42=2 41 2=82=41=0.25
e2>e1  x=4
