Pumpkin pie

Have some pumpkin pie. One half of the pie is cut into 4 equal slices, the other half is cut into 3 equal slices. After eating one of the larger slices (on the 3 piece side), I wonder if I will eat more if I have one more from the 3 side, or two from the 4 side…

Correct answer:

e1 =  0.1667
e2 =  0.25
x =  4

Step-by-step explanation:

e1=12 13=16=0.1667
e2=12 24=14=0.25
e2>e1  x=4=4
