Packaging a Magic Wand
Problem Statement:
You want to ship a 10 inches long magic wand to your friend as a birthday gift. The longest dimension of the shipping envelope you're using must be 10.9" in order to snuggly fit in the 10" wand. Knowing the envelope is 6.25" high, design the smallest width to achieve this task (Round answer to nearest hundredths - tip: to avoid precision error, don't round until the very end).
