**Complete the following activity.**

You will turn in the results of this activity for your assessment for this lesson.

- Calculate the volume and surface area of a standard cereal box.
- Calculate the cost of manufacturing a standard cereal box if cardboard costs .05 per square inch.
- Design a new cereal box that will hold the same amount of cereal but reduce manufacturing costs. Prove that your new design holds the same amount but can be manufactured more cheaply.
- Draw a net of your new design. Include all relevant measurements so that your cereal box can be mass produced.

**You will turn in the following:**

- a table containing the measurements of a standard cereal box
- clearly labeled work showing how you calculated the volume of a standard cereal box
- clearly labeled work showing how you calculated the surface area of a standard cereal box
- clearly labeled work showing how you found the cost of producing a standard cereal box
- an explanation proving that your new design holds the same amount of cereal as a standard cereal box but that it costs less to manufacture
- a net of your new design, including any measurements that would be necessary to produce the cereal box
