2.Process

First I got graph paper and read the problem. I also got colored pencils so I can draw the different shapes. Then I started sketching shapes on the graph paper. Then by putting different shaped 3 by 5 inch boxes into the 17 by 22 inch boxes we found out that the maximum number of 3 by 5 inch boxes into the 17 by 22 inch box was 24 and the minimum was 22. I followed the same steps for the 9 by 12 inch, and 10 by 12.

3.Solution • 3 by 5 inch-22 patches fit into the 17 by inch box.

• 9 by 10 inch-2 patches fit into the 17 by inch box.

• 5 by 12 inch-5 patches fit into the 17 by inch box.

• 10 by 12 inch-2 patches fit into the 17 by inch
