Alex built a snowman with three snowballs,one small, one medium and one large, with diameters in the ratio 2:3:5. Although highly unlikely because of the physical properties of snow, suppose the three snowballs were perfectly curved and stacked vertically, one on top of the other, as shown, together with adjoining snowballs sharing a single point of tangency. If the diameter of the medium snowball was 18 inches, what was the maximum elevation, in feet, of the snowman Alex constructed using the 3 snowballs?
