 Misshapen Butter Pats (Posted on 2005-08-16)
While buttering my bread at lunch one day I mused that one can not only cut a square pat of butter in half with only a knife, but also if the pat is in the shape of a regular n-gon, n>3. But what if the pat is shaped like an irregular quadrilateral?

Can you bisect the area of an arbitrary quadrilateral with one straight line using only a straightedge and a compass?
