Cutting Corners (Posted on 2003-11-20) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Suppose you have a circle that is perfectly inscribed in a rectangle.
A smaller rectangle is placed on top of the first one, such that one corner is on the edge of the circle and the opposite corner matches a corner of the larger rectangle.

If the smaller rectangle is twice as long as it is high, how many of them will fit into of the larger one (without overlapping, of course)?
