However, cutting a pancake exactly in half, one for you and one for your friend, is not trivial matter. It is even less trivial when you understand that your friend also has a favorite pancake which he wants to share as well, so now we need to double our cutting process. In this post we will show that with a bit of mathematics, not only you can cut both pancakes exactly in half, but you can do it simultaneously with a single straight line.
