THANKS A LOT!!!Found 2 solutions by stanbon, checkley71:Answer by stanbon(57260)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!How do you do surface area if you have a cylinder? Formula: surface area = (circumference)*(height) = 2(pi)r*h --------------- How do you do surface area if you have a rectangle? Formula: surface area = length*width --------------- Post a couple of your problems and you will get help using these formula. =================== Cheers, Stan H. Answer by checkley71(8403)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!SURFACE AREA OF A CYLINDER=C*H WHERE C=THE CIRCIMFERANCE OF THE BASE & H=HEIGHT. SURFACE AREA OF A RECTANGLE=B1*B2*H WHERE B1=ONE OF THE BASE MEASUREMENTS, B2= THE OTHER BASE MEASUREMENT & H=HEIGHT.
