# How Many Slabs needed? Fitting Series of smaller rectangles (various L x W dimensions) into a larger rectangle (fixed L x W dimensions)

May be wrong, but I think this is just a 2D version of the Bin Packing Problem..

A countertop maker needs to figure out how many slabs of a certain size to order for a job. Each client's kitchen is a different layout, but the amount of material needed can be broken down into a series of small rectangles.

User should be able to change the dimensions of the master slab

User should be able to enter Length x Width dimensions for an unlimited series of rectangular pieces

Output should show # of slabs required & which pieces fit into each slab (see example below)

**USER DEFINES**

Slab = 120" x 56"

R1 = 4" x 72"

R2 = 4" x 30"

R3 = 26" x 60"

R4 = 36" x 58"

...etc

**OUTPUT**

_** = # of slabs required
... slab #1 contains pieces: ____**

... slab #2 contains pieces:

**__**

...etc.
