quatre pieces. shouldn't that be correct?

why not "vous allez partager le gateau en quatre pieces"

Try en quatre morceaux. When speaking of food "a piece" is un morceau. I can't say whether or not it will be accepted though. ☺

I thought partager was share??

It also means "to divide (up)" see here

Shouldn't this be "Tu vas parteger le gâteau en quatre morceaux?" Otherwise, the question-sentence should have been "You are going to divide the cake into four," rather than "You are going to divide the cake into four parts." Right?

Oh this does not make sense if I do not unless I state that I received the only correct answer as "Tu vas parteger le gâteaux en quatre," when the question was "You are going to divide the cake into four parts."

can someone please confirm whether "... en quatre pièces" should be accepted or is indeed incorrect in this context?
