Squares are the EASIEST to compute the number of servings. A serving is 1 X 2 X height. Therefore multiply the length of one side (the 1" side of the serving) by 1/2 the length(the 2" side of the serving) of the other side.

A 10" square pan yields
10 X 5 = 50 servings.

Fun with math.

12" - 10" - 8" gives 72, 50, and 32 servings respectively. Each tier is 4" high.
