Gyan has boxes in three sizes: large, standard, and small. He puts 11 large boxes on a table. He leaves some of these boxes empty, and in all the other boxes he puts 8 standard boxes. He leaves some of these standard boxes empty, and in all the other standard boxes he puts 8 (empty) small boxes. Now, 102 of all the boxes on the table are empty.
