A box made of four identical rectangles for the front/top/back/bottom and the end pieces are squares.

That's the mean ('average') of the numbers in the dataset,divided by the number of pieces of data.

6/10 = 0.6 6/100 = 0.06 0.6 > 0.06 Break something up into ten identical pieces. Set aside six of them. Break the same thing up into one hundred identical pieces. Set aside six of them. They'll be much smaller than the first six.

In one sense you cannot. The cakes would have a different number of faces which were part of the original faces. To that extent the pieces will not be identical. If such pieces are considered identical, and if the cake pieces can be stacked before cutting, then 9 cuts will suffice. Without stacking, 12 cuts are required. If the cake can be stacked and cut, and a little wastage (less than 2.5%) is pemitted, then 7 cuts will be enough.
