A PACKING PUZZLE.





(Measuring, Weight, and Packing Puzzles.)

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

wide, and 14 inches deep. Now, what is the greatest number of the
balls that he could pack into that box?
