You probably know how many coins can be placed on a flat surface so that
they all touch an identical coin in the middle…
Can you explain why this is the maximum ?
Now can you imagine how many tennis or golf balls can be arranged,
in 3-D space, so that they all touch an identical ball in the middle ?
Is there more than one way to do it ?
