So, true story:
I made a large circular tortilla.
Ate half of it. Then decided to put the rest into the fridge on a smaller plate.I raised the knife to cut the remaining semicircle in two, and then went : "Hmmmmmmmm...".
Anyway, it's in the fridge now with an approximate solution, but I'm wondering if anyone knows the mathematical one?
I'm wondering if there are 3 different optimal solutions:
1) In which the straightline cut necessarily is from the center of the original circle to the edge. I.e. a radius.
2) In which the straightline cut may divide the semicircle in any possible way.
3) In which the cut is not necessarily a straight line.
Thanks in advance if anyone can offer a demonstration.
