THE BUN PUZZLE.





(Various Dissection Puzzles)
THE three circles represent three buns, and it is simply required to
show how these may be equally divided among four boys. The buns must be
regarded as of equal thickness throughout and of equal thickness to each
other. Of course, they must be cut into as few pieces as possible. To
simplify it I will state the rather surprising fact that only five
pieces are necessary, from which it will be seen that one boy gets his
share in two pieces and the other three receive theirs in a single
piece. I am aware that this statement "gives away" the puzzle, but it
should not destroy its interest to those who like to discover the
"reason why."
