I need to do an assignment where I find two cereal boxes that have the same volume but differ in surface area? Can someone please tell me when I'm looking at the boxes what I need to be looking at to compare these two things please? Thank you!
volume = w * h * l
surface area = 2wh + 2lh + 2wl
So find something with dimensions that multiply up to the same number but the surface area is different, for example if w = 1 h = 2 l = 8
w= 1 h = 4 l = 4
It would give different surface areas
4 + 32 + 16
8 + 8 + 32
