Well, here is my best solution.

1. Cut the pizza in half (cut #1) - makes 2 pieces.

2. Stack the 2 halves on top of each other.

3. Cut the halves in half (cut #2) - now you have 4 pieces.

4. Stack the quarters on top of each other.

5. Cut the quarters in half (cut #3) - makes 8 pieces in total.

FYI - I could cut the pizza into 7 pieces with 3 cuts (no stacking required)

Just looking at my solution...looks like a great example of exponents!!

cut #1 - 2^1

cut #2 - 2^2

cut #3 - 2^3

I can cut a

cakeinto 8 equal pieces using 3 cuts and no stacking, but a pizza ... hmmm ... thinking about that one ... (thanks! ;-))I liked Ms. Armstrong's solutions -- that's thinking "outside the box!' ;-)

Like ms.Armstrong said about the 7 pieces, i tried all day and still can only get 7 slices and they're not even all equal.

this is a hard puzzle, good job, you stumped me.

hahha... u got the grown ups thinking.. nice job.. lol... uyen, you amaze me. lol... cya at school!!

It was a really good one.

I solved it in 10 minutes. The first time ever for me to take this long on to solve the riddle.
