    the surface area of a cylinder is 2pir *height so than the ratio will be 6/15 = 2/5

    6^2 : 15^2

    the surface area for the cylinder is the same as the circle and has nothing to do with height

    2 cylinders are similar so areas in ratio of squares of corresponding lengths

    quakeash this not is right because the surface area of a cylinder is 2 time area of base (down and up) + lateral area what is curcumpherance of base time height of cylinder
