The five clowns
The clowns wants to spend as little as they can on the boxes so they buy ones with the smallest possible size. Given below is the radii of the circles each clown needs to pack.
\[80,50,31,19,56,38,87,21\] \[85,69,22,28,2,84,82,83\] \[31,77,40,75,48,99,45\] \[5,55,22,33,07\] \[12,23,97,42,9,15,50,21\]
Find the width of the smallest rectangular box each clown needs to buy and input the sum of the widths of the five rectangles as the answer.(rounded DOWN to the nearest integer).
Circles are arranged linearly and no circle is stacked on top of another.
Size refers to the width or horizontal length of the smallest possible rectangle.
Below is an example of an acceptable way of packing four circles,though it might not be the optimal way ;) .
For three circles of radii \(2,2,2\) the smallest possible size is \(12\)
For \(1,2,3\) it is \(11.293\)
For \(5,6\) it is \(21.954\)
