So if you order pizza regularly, you know a 6 pizza is a small, about 8", and an 8 slice pizza is medium, about 10".

I can picture what I expect when I order one, but I've never taken a tape measure to it. Have you?
No, but I can guess the size of something by eyeballing it. 16" is about the distance from my elbow to the tip of my middle finger.
