Gluing Cubes (Posted on 2016-12-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A set of three cubes are to be glued together so the resulting figure has the minimum surface area. The specific case with edge lengths {1,2,4} is discussed in Sugar Cubes.

For a general set of three edge lengths {x,y,z}, what is the minimum surface area? (This may be dependent on the relative sizes of x, y ,and z.)
