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?
Food for thought, indeed!
