You work at a canning factory that's producing cans for a new brand of soup. You need to decide what size the cans should be. The soup cans can have a radius of either 2 in, 2.5 in, 3 in, or 3.5 in. The cans need to hold a volume of exactly 90 in cu. The company wants the cans to be no more than 5 inches tall and it wants the cans to have the greatest lateral surface area possible so it can print more information on the side of the cans. - What is the Height and Lateral Surface Area of EACH can?
