## Problem of the Day #54: Lots of Circles
*May 12, 2011*

Isosceles trapezoid $ABCD$ has parallel sides of length $6$ and $8$. We wish to place circles of radius $1$ and $2$ inside this trapezoid. If the number of circles of radius $1$ can only differ from the number of circles of radius $2$ by at most $2$, what is the maximum number of circles than can be placed inside the trapezoid with no overlap?
