Covering a circle (extended mix) (Posted on 2006-06-20) Difficulty: 3 of 5
In "Covering a circle" you were to cover a unit circle with 3 squares as small as possible.

I would like instead to cover a circle of maximum radius with n non-overlapping unit squares.

The n=3 problem is solved. Try 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. (Feel free to keep going. I've done up to 36, but that's a bit excessive.)
