Problem 3.131

A group of students loads a 2 3.3-m flatbed trailer with two 0.66 0.66 0.66-m boxes and one0.66 0.66 1.2-m 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 second0.66 0.66 1.2-m box and where on the trailer they should secure it, without any part of the box overhanging the sides of the trailer, if each box is uniformly loaded and the line of action of the resultant of the weights of the four boxes is to pass through the point of intersection of the centerlines of the trailer and the axle. (Hint: Keep in mind that the box may be placed either on its side or on its end.)
