[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Suppose B is looking at A's top-down image from the right. From B's side view, the most boxes would be, from left to right:

    2 high x 2 stacks = 4 boxes
    3 high x 3 stacks = 9 boxes
    1 high x 3 stacks = 3 boxes
    2 high x 2 stacks = 4 boxes

    That's 20 boxes total. Is that the most?

Hint Two
    Suppose B is looking at A's top-down image from the bottom. From B's side view, the most boxes would be, from left to right:

    2 high x 3 stacks = 6 boxes
    3 high x 1 stack = 3 boxes
    1 high x 2 stacks = 2 boxes
    2 high x 4 stacks = 8 boxes

    That's 19 boxes total. Is that the most?

Hint Three
    Suppose B is looking at A's top-down image from the left. From B's side view, the most boxes would be, from left to right:

    2 high x 2 stacks = 4 boxes
    3 high x 3 stacks = 9 boxes
    1 high x 3 stacks = 3 boxes
    2 high x 2 stacks = 4 boxes

    That's 20 boxes total. Is that the most?

Super Hint
    Suppose B is looking at A's top-down image from the top. If you count them up as in the previous hints and there are more than 20, that's your answer.

    Now all you need to do is count!
