It does, actually. As you increase the linear dimensions, the area
(and, hence, the amount of glass you are getting) increases by the
square of the linear increase, and price tends to track area (amount
To the extent that the price of regular float glass does not exhibit
this sharp increase in price, it is because you are overpaying for
small pieces or because the cost of cutting, which does not increase
by the square of the linear increase, becomes a larger part of the total.
