Leave it to a mathematical scientist to determine we've been cutting cake wrong all these years.

Sir Francis Galton solved the cake cutting equation in 1906 and yet, we never learned to cut a cake the proper mathematical way.

Nothing against Galton's math, but after watching the video, cutting a cake the scientific way may not always be the best and certainly not the easiest way.

I don't know about you, but it seems pretty obvious why Galton's cake cutting method never caught on. Still, it's humorous to see how a scientist and mathematician approaches something so mundane as cake cutting.
