## 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."
