Problem C. 1179. (September 2013)

C. 1179. Lily is making pudding by her grandmother's recipe. She has a 42×36-cm baking tin and glass bowls of diameter 10 cm. She places the bowls in the tin, right next to each other, then fills the tin with water and bakes the pudding. Her grandmother always made 12 bowls of pudding in this way, but Lily can make more. How?

Sorry, the solution is available only in Hungarian. Google translation

Megoldás. Az ábrán látható elrendezésben 14 tál pudingot is meg lehet sütni.

Az elrendezés szélessége \(\displaystyle 4\cdot10=40<42\).

Az elrendezés magassága pedig az \(\displaystyle FE\) és az \(\displaystyle RT\) szakaszok, valamint az ábrán látható három egyenlő oldalú háromszög magasságának összege: \(\displaystyle 10+3\cdot\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\cdot10+10\approx35,98<36\).
