A company is making two types of aluminum containers. One is a cylinder with a height of 1.25 feet and a diameter of 1 foot. The other is a rectangular prism with a length of 0.75 foot, a width of 0.75 foot, and a height of 1 foot. Aluminum costs $.02 per square foot. How much will it cost to produce each type of container? Round to the nearest cent. Which container holds more?
