    yeah, you go and do that. :rolleyes:

    why watermelons though? whats wrong with cakes? is it because a melon has a spherical shape whereas a cake can be treated two dimensionally? :rolleyes:

    Mangos are good, except my teeth don't love them as much as they love mellons. Besides, you can get seedless watermellons, but you can't have coreless mangos. (Or maybe you can these days, I'm not really up to date with mango news)

    Watermellons are less elastic than mangos. But that's not the point. I get toothache if I eat too much mango, and my throat gets a burn feeling. But with watermellons, I can eat as much as my stomach can take.

    I can turn that into a dirty joke, but I think I should just stop here and go to bed.

    I loved the fruit in Thailand. It's so cheap and you can just buy masses of rambutan, lychees, some stuff I don't remember the name of, papaya, mango.. I never tried durian, though!

    mmmmmm mango i've been decadent over the last few weeks and have been buying one of those pre-packaged portions every lunchbreak. M&S ones are nearly always unripe though, and tesco ones taste fizzy for some reason. best so far is sainsbury's mmmmm. Obviously the best ever are from tooting market. Huge crates for a fiver

    This forum never ceases to amaze me. A promising discussion about cake hijacked by fruit! :rolleyes:

    (Original post by crana9)
    If you mean, what is the maximum number of pieces of cake you can get with 4 cuts, I don't think it's possible to answer that unless you specify, for example, that every cut must be a straight line or restrictions like that. Is it meant to have an actual answer?
    There were sensible restrictions. Straight line cuts, no using any dimension higher than the third. Eleven is the correct answer if you are not allowed to rearrange the bits of cake between cuts.
