**Steve**, Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 11:03amYou need to define what's "fair" here. None of the choices provides equal amounts to all three. Is any of them fair to anyone?

Maybe fairness depends on weight, or hunger, or social standing. This question is meaningless without an explanation of what's fair.

If by "fair" you mean which provides at least 1/3 of the cake to a person, then

#1 is "fair" only to whoever gets s2.
