## Description

How can 2 people split up a cake, knowing that each person wants to get a larger piece than the other? What about 3 people, or even N people? This is an example of a fair division problem from game theory. There are many cake-cutting algorithms to produce a fair solution mathematically. In this video I describe the "I cut, you choose" method and the "last diminisher method."
