Sixth Sense

Can an object be cut precisely into thirds simply by strategic halving? How about using halving to cut it precisely into fifths? In this month's Sixth Sense we reproduce an article from the ATM which features a not entirely fictitious conversation between Mike Ollerton and Jonny Griffiths in which they discuss a particularly mathematical way to share a toad-in-the-hole!

Our thanks to the ATM for allowing us to use the article. The article is copyright of the ATM.
