First, my book on creativity, Did You Spot The Gorilla?, came out on Kindle in the USA over the weekend. Further details here.
Second, on Friday I posted this puzzle….I like doughnuts. Last week I bought a doughnut and wondered…..what is the largest number of pieces I can create by three straight cuts (and not rearranging the pieces between cuts)?
If you have not tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else the answer is after the break.Nine…..
UPDATE: Ed has correctly pointed out that the wonderful Tim Hunkin claims 13 pieces! Details here.
I have produced an ebook containing 101 of the previous Friday Puzzles! It is called PUZZLED and is available for the Kindle (UK here and USA here) and on the iBookstore (UK here in the USA here). You can try 101 of the puzzles for free here.
