I need an example of two cereal boxes that have the same volume but different surface area. I need the brand and box sizes.

Then I need to pick one of the cereal boxes and redesign it so that it has the same volume but less surface area.

Why do you think most products are not manufactured in the shape that requires the least amount of packaging material?
