Two boxes must be wrapped. Both boxes are right rectangular prisms. The smaller box has a length of 12 inches. The larger box is similar to the first and has a length of 48 inches. Find the ratio of the amount of paper needed to wrap the large box to the amount of paper needed to wrap the small box.

I'm thinkin that since the larger box is 4 times the smaller, then it would be 4 x 4 x 4 = 64:1, but that just doesn't sound right.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
