Cut a cake piece into 2! (Google)


How do you cut a rectangular cake into two equal pieces when someone has already taken a rectangular piece from it? The removed piece can be of any size or at any place in the cake. You are only allowed one straight cut.

This question was during an interview with Google, India.
