    The new container will have a lesser amount of the frozen concentrate because 43.26 > 50.27

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Using the formula to find the volume of a cylinder (V=r2h), I will figure out that the current cylinder container holds 50.27 inches3 of Orange Juice.

    Again, using the formula to find the volume of a cylinder (V=r2h), I will figure out that the company would change it's containers to a cylinder which on holds 43.26 inches3 of Orange Juice.
