My interests are in Computers, Electronics, Technology, Music, Humor, Philosophy & Religion. On a good day, I am an Info Junkie. On a bad day, I indulge my journal. I am a journey person where the journey is the reward. I am in touch with my past as intimately as I am with my future. Time is like a telescope, it can contract and expand at will. Perhaps, I am a dreamer and always on a quest to seek that illusive but tantalizing new "idea" on this finite journey of life.

2 AnswersCell Phones & Plans7 years ago### How many pieces of a regular round cake can you get with four straight cuts?

For example with 3 cuts, we can get a maximum of 8 pieces.

(Two cuts to get quarters and one cut horizontally across to get 8 pieces.)

So, what is the maximum number of pieces with 4 cuts.

Note that the pieces NEED NOT be the same size.

For the mathemtically savvy, you can provide a general solution.

Also, note that the cake pieces should not be moved during the cuts. That means, it is an in-place cut, the cake pieces remain in their original positions.
