You have a birthday cake and have exactly 3 slices to cut it into 8 equal pieces. How do you do it?

36 Answers

Cut in half, stack, cut in half, stack, cut in half. All you have to worry about is the 45 degree rotation of one of the 4 pieces after the second cut. Blade can be kept in place, like a paper cutter, as to minimize the margin for error.

Slice it horizontally across the middle creating two equal halves top and bottom. Then simple two slice cross from above like normal.

Cut each slice into 3 slices. Then eat one of them.

Was drilled by one portfolio manager regarding highly specific financial ratios, which I failed to recall from my early MBA days. He then proceeded to pontificate as to why I was not able to answer the question given the fact that I was almost done with my MBA. Other questions were fairly straightforward and the remaining portfolio managers and COO were cordial.
