"I suppose I could share this triangular cake. It's really tasty, but I can spare half of it, and my friends can divide that between them.
Then again, it is my cake. It's only fair that I should have most of it...
I'll just cut two pieces with a ratio of 4:5 and take the bigger piece. That's still pretty generous, isn't it?"
The sides of the cake of 15 in. long. How far along the side should he cut?
"I can have my cake and eat it, too!
If I cut the side at 10 in. as shown, the proportion of the portions is exactly 4:5.
I can eat lots of cake and share with my friends, too!"
