Additional Pounds ON The Bed

Geometry Level 4

Suppose you have a bunch of wooden beds, weighing 200 pounds each, arranged in a pyramid. The base layer is 5 beds × 5 beds, the layer above is 4 beds × 4 beds, and so on until the top layer of one bed. They are arranged in such a way that each bed is resting on four beds below it, one leg on each bed. If the weight on each bed is always equally distributed to all four legs, and each bed leg can only support 200 pounds, how many additional pounds could you place on top of the topmost bed?
