It's my unbirthday!

The birthday cake must be cut into eight equally sized pieces. However, you are allowed to make only 3 straight cuts.

The Question: How can the cake be cut into eight pieces with only 3 straight cuts?


  1. Well you would make two cuts, to make 4 equal peices (like an X) and then cut the cake horizontally. Sorta like if you had a two layer cake, you just seperate the two layers with a cut. Then you get 8 equal one layer peieces.

  2. So you pretty much tear the 2 layer caek apart? Cheap. =p

  3. Well done, tim linden. I know a lot of people who always want that small piece, right?
