    so v=(pi)r^2 * h + (2/3)(pi)r^2?

    surface area = (pi)r^2 + 2(pi)rh + 2(pi)r^2

    for volume plug in 5 for v and calculate h in terms of r

    [5 - (2/3)(pi)r^2] / (pi)r^2 = h

    5/(pi)r^2 - (2/3) = h

    surface area = 3(pi)r^2 + 2(pi)rh plug in for h 3(pi)r^2 + 2(pi)r[5/(pi)r^2 - (2/3)] = 3(pi)r^2 + 10/(pi)r - 4(pi)r/3
