  • 7. In this game, two persons A and B are given a cake and they will have to share the cake and they shall receive a fair share in the cake.<br />Here the problem is that if A is asked to cut the cake, there is a chance that he reserves the bigger piece for himself and give B the smaller piece.<br />Cutting A Cake<br /> www.HelpWithAssignment.com<br />
  • 8. Same is the case with B. If B is asked to cut the cake, he will do exactly as A. <br />So, the best solution to this problem is given as the person who is not cutting the cake will reserve the right to choose first.<br />Cutting A Cake<br /> www.HelpWithAssignment.com<br />

Here, the person will choose the bigger piece available and leave the smaller piece to the one who had cut the cake.<br />So, the person cutting the cake will cut the cake in such a way that either of them will get the maximum possible portion of the cake.<br />Cutting A Cake<br /> www.HelpWithAssignment.com<br />
