Imagine you had 13 boxed of dimensions 4 by 5 by 1 inches.

In what way could you package those 13 boxes into a large box with the minimum of wasted space and what would the dimensions of the larger box be?

It is hard because it is a prime number.

Are there any constraints on the dimensions of the box we're packing them in?

1 - place them all in a row. Box=4x5x13, no wasted space
2 - place two stacks of five (on their backs) in a row and cap the rows with the remaining three. Box=13x4x5, no wasted space

on the second one, no reason to put some on their backs. They could all just stand up and fit in that space.

I'd say the constraints are anything that I can easily purchase from uline.com

I really wanted to box these into 'cases of 13', but I don't see a way to do it without just leaving dead space.

Any type of configuration ends up being unneeded. You can just stack the starters and end up taking up the same amount of space.

So a single column of starters fits best, but they don't make a 13 by 5 by 4 box. so the box they would fit it would hold 14 or 15 starters...

so I don't think I can do what I want to do.

S-19099

12" x 5" x 4", pack by the dozen. Yes, I know why you want 13, but just go with a dozen.

You should order 25 and try them out.

yeah, I know.

I can probably get a sample just to see that they fit.

I'll be making an order soon and will take these on.
