abstract

  • In this work, motivated by the fact that the division 1/3 = 0,z{3 is not exact, while for example one can divide a cake into three exact pieces. We describe a logical procedure to divide every real number r ∈ R into m ∈ N = {1, 2, 3, . . .} or more general m ∈ R \ {0} exact parts and we also show the corresponding exact formula..
