Eyes Down - A piece of cake?

This cake, on sale recently at the Royal Academy, is inviting to the palate and to the maths teacher as well. Look carefully towards the bottom of the picture and you’ll see that a slice costs £4.95. Could your pupils come up with an estimated price for the whole cake, and how would they explain their reasoning? 

Carrot cake

Food for thought, indeed!


If you have a thought-inducing picture, please send a copy (ideally, about 1-2Mb) to us at info@ncetm.org.uk, with a note of where and when it was taken, and any comments on it you may have.
