'Lucky Cow' cheese

Act 1

A video is shown of two bagels being toasted. A piece of spreading cheese in the shape of a sector of a circle is to be cut. Where should we make a horizontal cut so we have equal amounts of cheese to spread on the two bagels?

Act 2

Further information is given in the form of photographs of the cheese. These show the angle of the sector, the radius of the circle, and the height of the wedge.
