Volume of either package is 2.5 ft^3

Prism base x h = volume : 1x 2 x h = 2.5 ft^3

h = 2.5/2 = 1.25 ft

Surface area of prism (without a top) 2 x (1 x 1.25) + 2 x (2x 1.25) + 1 x 2 = 9.5 sq ft

Cylinder volume = base area x h : 2.5 x h = 2.5 h = 1

surface area (without a top) = base area + side base area/pi = r^2 so r = .892288 so diameter = 2r = 1.78458

2.5 + (1.78458 x 1) = 4.28 sq ft

It will take almost twice as much material to make the rectangular prism box as the cylinder container
