A rug cleaning company sells three models. EZ model weighs 10​ pounds, packed in a​ 10-cubic-foot box. Mini model weighs 20​ pounds, packed in an​ 8-cubic-foot box. Hefty model weighs 60​ pounds, packed in a​ 28-cubic-foot box. A delivery van has 284 cubic feet of space and can hold a maximum of 440 pounds. To be fully​ loaded, how many of each should it carry if the driver wants the maximum number of Hefty​ models?

This problem assumes (erroneously) that the boxes are mailable and can be "squeezed" into the given volume.
