PROBLEM 1
The video discusses the requirements of a package to qualify as freight. A package must weigh at least 151 pounds. It must be palletized, stackable, forkliftfriendly and shrinkwrapped or banded for stability. The uniform cargo footprint can be no larger than 16 square feet and no taller than 70 inches with a maximum weight for a standard freight package of 2,200 pounds. If you are shipping 6,751 pounds of stackable 8 foot square items with a value of $33,150, does your shipment qualify as freight? If so, how many freight packages would you need? Calculate the actual pounds for each freight package.

You can stack the packages 4 to a layer on the pallet. Since you have 6751 pounds, you will need 4 pallets; 3 pallets can carry only 6600 lbs. That leaves exactly 151 lbs for the 4th pallet.
You don't say how tall the packages are, so I have to assume that 2200 lbs does not involve so many packages that they exceed the stack height.
The value is irrelevant here.
