What is the radius of the smallest circle that can enclose all 52 non-overlapping cards of an ordinary deck of playing cards? And what is the configuration of the cards?
Assume cards are perfect 5 by 7 rectangles.
10 across the centerline 9 above all vertical
Rows of 6, 4, 2 horizontal
r = sqrt(699.25) = 26.4433
My best so far.
