You have to find the side of the box with the biggest area. In that side you will place the bottoms of the cans.
Is it true always that selecting the face with biggest area will result in max cans fit inside the carton?
No, not always true.

Height of Cylindrical can = 12. This gets aligned with dimension "14" of the carton (refer it as height of the box. This will give minimum wastage)
This is NOT always true.In this case, no matter how you orient the box, you will be able to fit 20 in the box.
If you put them vertical on the 14x16 plane, then you can fit 12, but then you can fit 8 on top = 20.
If you put them vertical on the 14x20 plane, then you can fit 15, but then you can fit 5 on top = 20.
If you put them vertical on the 16x20 plane, then you can fit 20, and none on top = 20.
In other scenarios it's not always equal, but it's erroneous to state that one way will give minimum wastage all the time, simply not true.
