Heya, this is my first post, I hope it isn't too hard :rofl:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Alright, the problem goes like this. I put a sphere into a box to be shipped somewhere, it fits perfectly into the box and the sphere has a radius R. Now I have 8 styrofoam spheres that are placed on the corners of the box, find the largest radius that these 8 styrofoam spheres can be.

I drew a little diagram, it's only a front view of what the inside would look like because I can't draw all that well in 3D...

I really have no clue how to approach this problem, so any help will be nice! ^^
