Infinitely many tangent circles cover the plane in a repeating pattern as per graphic showing some of them.

Let $$x$$ be the fraction of the plane the circles cover.

Evaluate $$\left\lfloor 1000x \right\rfloor$$.

Note: There are just 5 different circle radii, corresponding to circles (from smallest to largest) that are tangent to 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 other circles. 14 of these circles can form a pattern that "tiles the plane".
