change C to radius. C=2PI r

r= C/2PI

Now volume is 4/3 PI r^3

**Steve**, Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 11:25amratio of circumference: 60/50 = 1.2

ratio of volumes: 1.2^3 = 1.728

ratio of costs: 1.5

so, since volume has gone up more than cost, the larger is a better buy.

Of course, the thickness of the rind will also be a factor. Good luck - gotta buy it before you can cut it open.

Extra credit: what rind thickness (as a % of diameter) will make them equal value?
