**Reiny**, Sunday, October 31, 2010 at 9:27pmTo cut a log into 4 pieces takes 3 cuts, so each cut took 2 minutes.

So to cut a log into 8 pieces requires 7 cuts.

Ignoring the fact that the smaller log should take less time for a cut,

to make the 7 cuts would then take 14 minutes.

So the total time for the 10 cuts is 20 minutes.
