A PACKING PUZZLE.





(Measuring, Weight, and Packing Puzzles.)
As we all know by experience, considerable ingenuity is often required
in packing articles into a box if space is not to be unduly wasted. A
man once told me that he had a large number of iron balls, all exactly
two inches in diameter, and he wished to pack as many of these as
possible into a rectangular box 24+9/10 inches long, 22+4/5 inches
wide, and 14 inches deep. Now, what is the greatest number of the
balls that he could pack into that box?
