Partitioning the Regions (Posted on 2004-08-23) Difficulty: 4 of 5

  1. Determine the formula for the maximum number of pieces if you cut a crescent moon (think capital letter 'C') with n straight lines.

  2. Determine the formula for the maximum number of pieces of cheesecake (a cylinder) produced by n plane cuts.
