Package Deal

Suppose you and your partner work for a company that makes tennis balls. Your company has decided to start selling tennis balls in packages of four, rather than the usual three.

Now suppose that each partner has been asked to design two packages. One partner's packages are to be cylinders, while the other partner's packages are to be rectangular prisms.

After you have determined the dimensions of your two packages, write a brief statement telling the advantages and disadvantages of each one.
