    2A = 4pi*r^2 2A = 4pi*(2)^2 2A = 16pi A = 8pi I set it equal to 2A because we want half the surface area, I found the full SA then divided by 2.

    the surface area on the outside is 8pi, you're correct, but you need to add the surface are where the cut was made (basically the area of a circle radius 4

    It's the surface area of half a sphere plus the surface area of the circle... \[\frac{4πr^2}{2}+\pi r^2=2 \pi r^2+\pi r ^2=3 \pi r^2= 3 \pi (2cm)^2=12 \pi\ cm\]
