Men's Basketball: use: $C=\pi d$ $29.5=\pi d$ $d=\frac{29.5}{\pi}\approx9.39$ Youth basketball: use: $C=\pi d$ $27.75=\pi d$ $d=\frac{27.75}{\pi}\approx8.83$ $8\lt9\lt9.39\lt10$ The diameter of the men's basketball is greater than 8 and 9 inches but less than 10 inches which means that the smallest box those balls can fit in is this one with a 10-inch long edge. $8\lt8.83\lt9\lt10$. The diameter of the men's basketball is greater than 8 inches but less than 9 and 10 inches which means that the smallest box those balls can fit in is this one with a 9-inch long edge.
