    \[ area = \pi r^2 + \pi r s\] r is 7 and s is 27 is that what you started with ?

    238 is r^2 + r*s the formula is pi r^2 + pi*r*s or pi*(r^2 + r*s)

    btw, you should not round to only 2 decimals, because your answer is slightly off. if you used all the digits the calculator gives you you get 747.6990516 which rounds to 747.7
