Chances are you’ll ask why, however we ask why not. First up, the artistic thoughts behind the @tsj_electronics TikTok account discovered what number of of every letter is within the common can of SpaghettiOs.

Every can of SpaghettiOs is about 37% the letter O, with the remainder cut up fairly evenly among the many different 25 letters within the alphabet. Although he breezes via this a part of the calculation, apparently J.R.R. Tolkien’s trilogy has 2,261,081 letters in it. The most typical letter is E, making it the limiting issue. So as to get all 281,428 E’s wanted, you’d must open 8,795 cans of SpaghettiOs. And also you’d additionally waste numerous meals, with 8,134,609 letters leftover.
The TikTok account, which we realized about from GameSpot, has another enjoyable SpaghettiOs content material exterior of The Lord of the Rings.

The SpaghettiOs model account acquired in contact, providing to ship him and his native meals pantry 192 cans every. He additionally created a font with the noodles and confirmed off how the letter M and W differ. The calculation involving the King James Bible provides new enjoyable information. A few of them embrace the quantity of energy and the way excessive that many cans would stack.

This isn’t the one enjoyable math downside that positively didn’t must be solved we’ve seen not too long ago. We additionally understand how a lot it will have cost E.T. to phone home if he’d used an everyday telephone and whether or not or not Westeros dragons are too big to fly on these small wings.
