 Question 299090: Find the surface area, to the nearest tenth, of a cylinder with diameter 5cm and height 8cm. (S=2 pi rh+2 pi r2).Answer by unlockmath(1599)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Hello, Since we know the formula is S=2 pi rh+2 pi r2 all we need to do is plug in the values we know to get: S=2 pi 2.5(8)+ 2 pi 2.5^2 Do the calculation and we get: S=40 pi + 12.5 pi Combine to get: S=52.5 pi square cm We could plug in 3.14 for pi to get: 164.9 sq cm (rounded to the nearest tenth) Make Sense?
