I did try it. that's why i found it falls slightly short :-)

Imagine you have a dish with a sloped side (the frustrum). The idea is to cut a circular piece of pastry to fit the base and the sides. However, the shape is not a circle when flattened and so a circular piece of pastry winds up (slightly) crumpled on the side slopes and thus "falls short" slightly.

I think the 10% hack factor accommodates this.

The code was an experiment to calculate the amount of pastry required to make a pie with an optional lid, and then calculate the amount of raw ingredients needed (ie flour, fat, etc.)
