## Síntese do concurso

One package has a size of 10 cm * 5 cm * 3.6 cm.

The forwarder accepts a belt dimension of max. 300 cm.

The belt dimension is calculated as follows: 2 * width + 2 * height + longest side.

The longest side must not exceed 175 cm.

What is the maximum number of packages that can be delivered?

Write and solve the problem with a mathematical equation.

P.S:
The correct answer is 1380 boxes. No one has sent in the correct equation yet. I will reward the first one who figures it out.

So, I have a couple of doubts.
1) Can I consider this belt as a box and you have to take the maximum number of packages in this box? as the belt gives me a picture whose height can be zero
2) The dimension formula given has nothing to do with the actual volume of the package right? The actual volume is still L*B*H?

So consider the longest side=100cm and the other sides to be 50-50 each
Now each box will take the area =10*5= 50 therefore we can have 100 boxes kept along the longest side and on the 50cm length and there will be a total of 50/3.6= 13.88= 13 such rows therefore you can fit 1300 boxes in that belt

can you give the packaging illustration? I can't imagine how you tie the box with 10 levels

Please check the problem once again. Either the dimensions are wrong, or the given formula is wrong or the answer of 480 boxes is wrong.

48 boxes side by side and 10 boxes on top of each other gives a total of 480 boxes with a volume of 10 * 50 * 172,8 cm (= belt dimension of 292,8cm)

However, according to the formula, the circumference of one box will be : 2*5+ 2*3.6+10= 27.2 cm. So a maximum belt dimension of 300 cm will be able to accommodate (300/27.2) or 11 boxes approx.

According to your reply, the dimension of 7 boxes is 80.4 cm. (2*10+2*5+2*3.6*7). So a dimension of 300 cm will be able to accommodate (300*7/80.4) or 26 boxes approx. How is the answer of 480 boxes possible?

Coupple of questions. 1) 10x5x3.6: which dim represent width and height. (2) What is forwarder please?

1) width and height are the shortest lengths (in this case 5 + 3.6).
2) forwarder means carrier / shipper / forwarding agent.

I got it solved in the meantime. The correct answer is 480 boxes. No one has sent in the correct equation yet. I will reward the first one who figures it out.
