Do you know the formula for the surface area of a cylinder pyramid thing?

slaaibakBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh mybad, you call it a cone. The formula is \[Surface Area = \pi \times radius^2 + \pi \times radius * height\]

Rae well the formula for surface area of a cone is 1/2 [pi x D x slant height] so plug in your numbers and solve

(height is the slant height in my formula) Dakota I think you are confused. That's not the formula.

Rae try my method plz i got the right answer!

They don't include the bottom surface it seems. Then just don't add the bottom surface. It reduces to Area = pi * radius * slant height

Therefore i am not confused slaaibak ;) and d is diameter

Rae<3RaeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i mean what is the diameter

slaaibakBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I agree, but you stated the "surface area of a cone is" which is false. But I see your point. Lateral surface. Diamater is twice the radius.

ok i got 113.04 can i just get hte answer

ok how do i get the answer from here: 1/2 (226.08)
 one year ago

dakotajason27Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
just multiply everything out and leave the pi until the very end then multiply by pi

omg [12 x 16pi] =192pi then 1/2[192] = 96pi then (96)(3.14) solve! i cant just give u the answer work it out

dakotajason27Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
u need help figure it out i just worked it out for you! geez its not rocket science just multiply!!!!!!!!!!
