### Cutting a cake into 16 pieces with 5 cuts?

Cut a round cake in eight equal sized wedge shaped pieces with four vertical cuts, then make one horizontal cut through the center of the cake to equal sixteen pieces. It's slightly more tricky if you are only allowed to cut the horizontal cross-section of the cake (treat the cake as a circle). In this case, first divide the cake with one cut (2 pieces), then cut it again so that it intersects the first…

### Explain why one eighth is greater than one tenth but less than one third?

Ok, imagine a cake. If you have 1/3, you cut the cake into 3 equal pieces, and take 1 piece. Now if you have 1/8, you cut the cake into eight equal pieces and take 1. The piece is smaller, so it's less than 1/3. For 1/10, you cut the cake into 10 equal pieces, and take 1. The piece is smaller than the 1/3 piece and 1/8 piece. When it comes to 1/x in…

In one sense you cannot. The cakes would have a different number of faces which were part of the original faces. To that extent the pieces will not be identical. If such pieces are considered identical, and if the cake pieces can be stacked before cutting, then 9 cuts will suffice. Without stacking, 12 cuts are required. If the cake can be stacked and cut, and a little wastage (less than 2.5%) is pemitted, then…
