A group of students loads a 2 × 4m flatbed trailer with two 0.6 × 0.6 × 0.6mboxes and one 0.6 × 0.6 × 1.2m box. Each of the boxes at the rear of the trailer is positioned so that it is aligned with both the back and a side of the trailer. Determine the smallest load the students should place in a second 0.6 × 0.6 × 1.2m box and
