I need to solve the following problem. I've got a piece of cloth 116 inches by 45 inches. I want to cut off rectangular pieces and reattach them such that
(a) The resulting piece of cloth contains a circle of as large a diameter as possible, and (b) I have to cut and re-sew as few pieces as possible.
Is there an easy way to solve this problem?
