# Gone Fission - Food for thought

This might, perhaps, be too easy, but this is my first riddle to post here.

Get Copernicus and cut him in half for the start
Divide the start by two and you've got one extra.
Divide it by eight, instead, and you've got the last.
Put all three together for a yummy snack.

The yummy snack is

Bacon

Reason:

Copernicus is the Chemical element. The atomic number is 112.
112 / 2 = 56 = Barium = Ba
56 / 2 - 1 = 27 = Cobalt = Co
56 / 8 = 7 = Nitro­gen = N

• Your answer is correct, but I want to wait until you double-check your reasoning to mark it as such. =D (Partially my fault, because I had the logic for the 2nd word incorrect until seconds before your answer) Mar 7, 2016 at 21:02
• I changed the "-" to "+" yet. XD Mar 7, 2016 at 21:03
• Yep, but Copper is not Co Mar 7, 2016 at 21:04
• Yes, but Bacun doesn't exists. Just kidding ;) . So is it okay, if I change Copper to Cu and say that I have to choose the both letters in front of each word? Mar 7, 2016 at 21:07
• Double-check the clue: "Divide the start by two and you've got one extra." You had it right, the first time, by accident. It could also be said that you have one too many. Mar 7, 2016 at 21:07
