Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[A = \pi r \space (r \space +\sqrt{h ^{2} \space + r^2} )\] \[\pi \space \times 6(6+\sqrt{21^2+6^2}\] = \[6\pi(6+\sqrt{477}) = 524.78\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Tis our formula for the cone's surface area where r = radius and h = height if we use an approxmation for the area of the cone we should get about 524.7
