let the original height = h and base radius = R.
let the new height = 12h and new radius = r.
now pi*r^2 = pi*R^2/9 ,r/R => 1/3 i.e R = 3r.
Original lateral surface area/ New lateral surface area = 2*pi*3r*h/ 2*pi*r*12h.
new lateral surface area = 4 original lateral surface area

In a circular cylinder , we have top area, lateral area and base area
Let us calculate the total surface of the cylinder, as follows:
top area = A, base area = A and lateral area = 2 x Pi x r x h = 2 x pi x sqroot ( A/Pi) x h
For the new coditions, top a = 1/9 A , base a = 1/9 A and
lateral area = 2 x pi x r x 12h = 2 x pi x sqroot ( 1/9 pi ) x 12 h = 8 x pi x sqrrot (A/pi) x h
top and base areas are decreased to 1/9 of the original value
the lateral surface is increased 4 (four times)

6*pi*r*l-16*pi*r*r/9 The original surface area being 2*pi*r*l+2*pi*r*r and the new being 2*pi*(r/3)*12*l +2*pi*(r/3)^2

Usually, pizzas are circular and they come in boxes with a square base. The circular pizza covers some percentage of area of the square base of the box. Let's say someone makes a square pizza and puts it in a box with a circular base. Will the square pizza cover more percentage of area in the box with circular base than the circular pizza in the box with square base ?

Assume that both the pizzas fit perfectly inside their respective boxes.
