You've got someone working for you for seven days and a gold bar to pay them. The gold bar is segmented into seven connected pieces. You must give them a piece of gold at the end of every day. If you are only allowed to make two breaks in the gold bar, how do you pay your worker?

For the first break. Break it into a 3 chunk piece and a 4 chunk piece. Then break the 3 chunk into 2 and 1.

On day 1 give the 1 piece.
On day two trade the 2 for the 1.
On day three give the 1 again.
On day four trade the 4 for the 1 and 2.
Etc etc
