This is easy - just count the sections - the answer is - there are 7 sections for 3 slices. Were you able to derive the formula? Here it is:

    The formula for the maximum number of sections of a "Pie" when sliced by a "knife" is
[n(n+1)/2] +1, where "n" is the number of slices. In this case it would be (3x4)/2+1, or 6+1 = 7.

Using this formula, see if you can solve a more difficult "Sliced Circle" problem.
