A cube is sliced in half by a plane cut orthogonal to a diagonal. We want to label the ten vertices of the half-cube with digits 0 through 9 so that the sum of the labels around each triangle is a constant, and the sum of the labels around each pentagon is another constant. We count all such labels.

Suppose that we are allowed to drill a cylindrical hole of any radius through the center of a unit ball or a unit cube in a given direction. Which radius will maximize the total exposed surface area (ESA) of the ﬁnished object? If we are allowed to drill two or three mutually orthogonal cylindrical holes of the same radius, which common radius will maximize the total ESA?
