Some problems in discrete geometry can be solved using topological methods by exploiting inherent symmetries. We will discuss some examples of this and focus on the Ham sandwich theorem, which guarantees that $d$ finite measures with continuous density in Euclidean $d$-space can be simultaneously cut in half by an affine hyperplane.
