    How to find best combination

    Hi There,
    I have a complex problem that can be solved by nested loops, which means programming skills which I am not equipped with at this point, but I thought you might have a suggestion on how to use Excel to solve that.

    Here is the problem:
    There is a span of 20 m which has to be filled with the prefabricated elements with standard spans of 3m, 4.2m, and 5m. I need to find out about the best combination of the standard elements which gives the least leftover.

    I do appreciate your help and time in advance.

    Best Regards,
    Farshid
