Three spheres (Posted on 2011-07-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
This is in continuation of Two circles.

In a 8.5x11x13.5 hollow rectangular cuboid, I place three identical solid spheres of equal volume - all completely inside the cuboid, of course.

What's the largest portion of the cuboid (in terms of volume) that these spheres can contain?

What would be the answer if I placed FOUR equal spheres?
