Ready, actionů,CUT! (Posted on 2012-05-16) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Four math students ordered three pizzas: one large (55 cm diameter), one medium (44 cm diameter) and one small (33 cm diameter).
Upon delivery they decided to divide it fairly between them by cutting the pizzas into the fewest number of pieces.
Ignoring the toppings and assuming uniformity of thickness please provide a solution with less than 6 pieces.

"..Dej Mar's solution looks valid (and elegant) to me. ..."

No, Sir,  Three guys get 18% each AND THE FOURTH GETS  46%.

DM DIVIDED PROPORTIONALLY TO PIZZAS' DIAMETERS (3:4:5}

INSTEAD THEIR AREAS (9:16:25}.

Do you still disagree with the D3  ??

Can you provide a feasible and elegant way of reasonably accurate cutting?
