MATH CAN TELL YOU HOW MUCH CANDY YOU COULD GET TONIGHT
If you want to get the greatest amount of candy while trick or treating, use math.
Paul Knight, an architect and city planner for Historical Concepts, an architecture firm, and the Doug Allen Institute for the Study of Cities has generated an equation for figuring out just how much candy you might acquire from any given neighbourhood.
Total Candy Haul = Acres × (Residential buildings per acre) × (Families per building) × (Share of candy-giving families) × (Candy pieces per family)
That seems like a lot of work to me. It also sounds like an episode of "Big Bang Theory."
