#### Solution

Consider a bar magnet of magnetic moment `vec"M"`. When a bar magnet first cut in two pieces along the axis, their magnetic moment is `vec"M"/2`

N |

Each piece is further cut into two pieces.

Their magnetic moment of each pieces `vec"M"/4`

Their magnetic moment of each pieces `vec"M"_"new" 1/4 vec"M"`
