  1. Nice solve Wilson.  I had nothing for this one for days.  Half convinced myself there was not enough info to solve and finally peaked at your answer.  Should never have doubted the master Mister 'puddn.  Most excellent.  I salute you sirs.


  2. Spoiler fwiw

    Spoiler

    Approached this kinda from what I learned from another bonanova puzzle (which happens to be my favorite of all time and what really got me hooked here)

    by looking at the rectangle in somewhat of a degenerative case were it approaches a line segment of 16 circle diameters.  That is, if the circle's diameter is said to be one unit, a rectangle which is just over sixteen units long and infinitesimally wide I think satisfies the OP.  Sixteen unit circles can cover a sixteen unit line segment so maybe seventeen circles would be the minimum to cover the above described rectangle.

  3. well hello, Sir.  Been a contemplating the above  since you first posted.  Have some preliminary thoughts but first a question:  is there any significance in the division of the two stanzas of the OP?  Understand if you don't care to respond.  Mostly just want to let you know am on the case.
