As no constraints on the shape or regularity of the resulting pieces are made, making a three by tree line grid on the pie surface would result in 16 separate pieces. Cutting the pie into regular wedges with 6 straight cuts passing through the center would result in 12 pieces.

Diameter

Don't make straight cuts.

A Knife

It is a diameter, the line that cuts the circle in an exact half.It is the diameter and passes through the center of the circle.

True. The first slice produces two pieces; the second slice intersects the first, bisecting each slice to produce four pieces; the third slice bisects two corner pieces to produce a total of 6 slices; and the fourth bisects two other corner pieces to produce eight slices

Lay the bananas next to each other then cut through all the bananas together. By making three cuts you will get nine pieces of banana.

A line that cuts a circle in half is called a diameter. It passes through the center of the circle and divides it into two equal parts.

Platelets are the cell pieces that form clots and seal up cuts.

If no cut intersects any previous cuts, then you can just slice it into 14 pieces.

4 pieces took 3 cuts.5 pieces will take 4 cuts.4 cuts requires (4/3) as much time as 3 cuts took= (4/3) x 12 = 16 seconds.
