Published in Brain Teasers

How can you divide a pizza into 8 equal slices using only 3 straight cuts?

Hint: Think three-dimensionally!


Cut #1: Cut the pizza straight down the middle into two halves

Cut #2: Keeping the two halves in place, cut the pizza straight down the middle at right angles to the first cut (you will be left with 4 equal quarters

Cut #3: Pile the 4 quarters on top of each other and cut through the middle of the pile. You will be left with 8 equal slices.
