21/02/2013 - Golden Payment (**)

This puzzle is rated 2 star (medium).


You have a solid gold bar, marked into 7 equal parts.

You need to pay an employee each day for one week. 

He charges exactly 1/7 of the gold bar per day. 

You are only allowed to make 2 cuts into the bar (and this is gold so don’t even think about “folding” the bar). 

How can you make the cuts to pay your worker one gold piece every day?

Check the solutions page for the correct answer.
