egg (approx) 2.4mm diameter 3.6 mm long = 65.144065262976mm3

a/b =331.54 + 25 calculated room of mass of space between eggs

so my answer is 357

The SPACE between the eggs has no mass.
And not only that, the eggs will be along side each other at different angles thus creating different spaces between them all. And you don't know any of the gap sizes so you cannot work that out. :whistle:



i put 10 of my own eggs into a cylinder and worked out avergae space between each 4 and the with the calculated eggs multiplies the amount of spaces that there should roughly be between the eggs if the original calc was close. i agree a lot is averages so it probably wont work , my initial thought was more arounf the 500 mark , but we will see if guestimation overall works better than guestimations put into a formula

I was told by the boss I need to enter this competition. So I just put a # here.

1 is my answer, so I sure won't win. Def don't want the eggs but just don't want to get smack if I don't put an answer down. :roll:

See what you really needed to do, was double that answer and then minus 73 and you'd be spot on :thumb: :wink:

Congrats Plant! :D
