More Math and Fruit (Vegetables?)

I was cutting up some squash the other day

and I thought I’d experiment cutting the squash into fifths and sixths.  For some reason, I thought I would do a much better job cutting the squash into equal sixths than into equal fifths–I am generally more comfortable with even numbers, and there is something quite unnatural about cutting a circle into fifths.  But I’m not sure either division was especially equal.

They both tasted great, though!
