Little time, lots of confusion

Let me clarify a few things first up. I am Ankit Sagwal,one of the guys from Dps Rk puram and not the immensly popular ankit pandey(by the way, where is he? still not found the time to join).I will post my photo as soon as i figure out how to do it(maybe that would work). I have not gone through the blog yet(its a lot of text) but i'll surely do it.
I think this space is meant for something more interesting rather than a general talk. Ok lets give you one of my favourites:-

The task is to fill 1cm diameter spheres into a box(cube) of 10cm edge.find the best pattern as well as the maximum possible no.

Short and smart!!

the next few lines might act as an apetizer for u guys(and gals-i can see a lot of them on the list). The question is not as easy as some of the first timers might think. Others might have done the 2d version of it(i should have given that first-comparetively easier)

a square of side 10cm is to be filled with circles of 1cm diameter. find the maximum no.

hint:- slightly more than 100

I think this should be it.Think over it.

Maths has always been a treasure (this is one of the gems)
I've got to rush, make my substitutions in the timesdreamteam(i wonder how many kvpyians know about it(fantasy game of football similar to super selector)) and then get down to study for my maths exam tomorrow(oh!! i have to start taking school exams more seriously).
