Down to the Last Slice
How do you cut a pizza into absolutely fair shares? Back in the 1950s, hungry mathematicians were already trying find a creative solution to this problem – and came up with the pizza theorem. Put simply: If you cut right across a pizza four times from a given point at an angle of 45° degrees, you will get eight pieces of different sizes, but there will still always be two pieces each of exactly the same size. Try it out. It’s only fair!
