A 4" high 10" square feeds 50 and a 12" feeds 72.

Single layers serve half of what the two-layer chart shows.

A single-layer 16" square serves 64.
A single-layer 18" square serves 80-81.
Two 11x15" (1/3 sheets) side by side serves 74.
Three 9x13" (1/4 sheets) pushed together serves 75.
Three 10" squares serve 75.

I'm sure you can come up with other custom combinations.
