Waste not….

I do understand being environmentally friendly and not unnecessarily wasting things like paper but this one just taxes my brain a bit too much.   Someone at the University of Leicester has actually come up with a formula to work out the most efficient amount of paper to use when wrapping gifts.  For those of you dying to know, the formula it is A1= 2(ab+ac+bc+c) where A is the area of paper needed and a, b, and c are the dimensions of the gift. 

I have enough trouble locating the paper, tape and scissors on Christmas Eve, now I need to find a ruler, calculator and a math genius!
