# Billiard balls

A layer of ivory billiard balls of radius 6.35 cm is in the form of a square. The balls are arranged so that each ball is tangent to every one adjacent to it. In the spaces between sets of 4 adjacent balls other balls rest, equal in size to the original. These balls form in turn a second layer on top of the first. Successive layers of this sort form a pyramidal pile with a single ball resting on top. If the bottom layer contains 16 balls, what is the height of the pile.
