# Let's Party!!

**Algebra**Level 2

Mr. Vaibhav, the man with whom I was sharing the compartment had six daughters each of whom had a brother. Mr. Vaibhav denied to have the cake. I took out the knife and decided to divide the cake into some parts so that all the kids and I can eat the cake.

Now if i need to divide the cake into even number of pieces i quickly do it, but if I had to cut the cake into odd number of pieces, I cut it into (n+1) parts and eat 2 pieces myself (in order to conceal my really bad cutting skills).

If I divided the cake into Y pieces and took the minimum possible Z slices to divide the cake into Y parts. What is Y+Z?

Hints: 1) A slice refers to a cut. For ex. the first slice can cut the cake to 2 pieces.
