Here's a challenging geometry puzzle for you. Here's a picture of the traditional Yin-Yang symbol. What is the equation of the line that goes through this symbol so each side of the line contain exactly equal amounts of black & white?

The outside is a unit circle (radius = 1 unit).

The arcs sweeping from the edge of the circle to the center, of course, have a radius of 1/2 of a unit.

The dots in the opposite-color field have a radius of 1/6 of a unit.
