 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS 1 + csc(Pi/7) is the radius of the smallest circle into which 8 unit circles can be packed ("r=3.304+ Proved by Braaksma in 1963.", according to the Friedman link, which has a diagram). csc(Pi/7) is the distance between the center of the larger circle and the center of each unit circle that touches the larger circle.
