## The Cube of Cheese

**Ref: Prof Ian Stewart’s Cabinet of Mathematical Curiosities**

An oldie, but none the worse for that. Marigold Mouse has a cube of cheese and a carving knife. She wishes to slice the cheese along a flat plane to obtain that a cross-section that is a regular hexagon. Can she do this, and if so, how?

Please do send your comments, answers, etc.

More later,
