 Cutting a round cake so that it doesn't dry out 2014-08-26 James pose la question :I'm wondering if there's a simple way to calculate the area between two parallel chords of a circle equidistant from its diameter, or if I have the area, to find the distance between the two chords. Here's my "problem". You may have heard of the way of cutting a round cake so that it doesn't dry out - make two parallel cuts (chords) the length of the cake, take the middle piece, then push the two pieces together. So I know the area of a 12" cake, and I want say, exactly an eighth of the cake. How wide do I cut the centre piece? Now to get even more difficult, the next day I want another eighth from the centre. How wide do I cut the next pieces, and so on...? Thanks, JamesHarley Weston lui répond.
