# Why does cutting a flatworm into pieces not kill it?

In gereral, the more poorly differentiated (the fewer complex structures that have specific functions) an organism is, the greater its ability to live and re-grow after being cut apart. Worms have this ability to re-grow in entirety, as do lower organisms like amoebas and fungi. In flatworms, their cells have the ability to differentiate into any type of tissue that the worm might need. These types of cells are called stem cells, and are the subject of ongoing research in medicine as to their applications in humans. There is a limit, however. a tiny slice of flatworm would not be able to develop into another worm.

# How can you divide a pizza into eight equal pieces using three cuts without rearranging the pizza?

Cut the pizza in half along a diameter going from west to east. Then cut the two halves along a diameter going from north to south. Finally, cut the four quarters with a circular cut that is centered on the center of the pizza and having a radius of about 71% that of the pizza (the exact figure is the square root of one half). Give the pieces from inside the circle to your friends who don't like the crust. By the way, it isn't possible to do this so that all eight pieces include part of the crust; the circumference of the pizza would have to be cut eight times, but it can only be cut twice by each of the three cuts.

# How do you cut a cake into 16 pieces?

If the cake is circular cut from one side across the top through the middle to the other side. Either cut across halfway between the top and bottom of the cake, then cut at right-angles to the line to make a cross. Then cut across the cake halfway between the arms of the cake, then half way between the other tow arms of the original cross. The cuts will look like spokes in a wheel. Or, if you don't make the first cut, do all the other cuts and then cut between the lines again to divide the existing pieces in half. A Square cake is easier. Halfway across one side of the cake cut across the middle of the cake from top to bottom. Cut across the cake halfway between the first cut and the outside edge of the cake, parallel to the first cut. Do the same to the other half. Turn the cake a quarter turn. Make the same 3 cuts at right-angles to the original cuts. The cake should have a checkerboard pattern with 16 squares.

Lord Voldemort created seven of these: his diary, Marvolo Gaunt's ring, Salazar Slytherin's locket, Helga Hufflepuff's cup, Rowena Ravenclaw's diadem, Harry Potter, Nagini his snake and the last remaining part of his soul was inside his own body. Voldemort never intended on leaving a piece of his soul inside Harry, and was unaware that he had until he had destroyed it. Technically, Harry is not a real Horcrux because Voldemort never went through the Horcrux process to make him but he still had a piece of Voldemort's soul inside him.

# What is the maximum number of slices a pizza can be cut into with n cuts?

2n or 2 x n because if you cut it one time it will be two slices (1 x 2) it you cut it two times it will be four slices (2 x 2) ''---------------- I am afraid that's not correct. Based on the above for 3 cuts, n=3 and number of slices would be 3x2=6, which is not the correct answer. If the the third cut intersects both the previous cuts at dfifferent points, you would get 7 slices. And if you make a fourth cut in such a way that it intersects previous cuts at different points, you would get 11 slices. (Now slices may be crumb sized, that is a different matter, but mathematically that is the max slices you could make!!) In general, maximum number of slices with n cuts would be (n^2 + n + 2)/2
