# Chocolate Bar

Alice has a $$2\times 3$$ chocolate bar. She wants to break it into 6 equal pieces by picking up every piece that is not size $$1\times 1$$ and cutting it horizontally or vertically along the grid line into two pieces. One way to do it with 5 cuts is shown in the diagram below:

Is there a way that Alice can do it with fewer than 5 cuts?
