1(a) The lateral surface area of a cone is pi R S, where S is the slant height and R is the radius.
Your 1(b) and 1(c) should not be called exact, since you used 3.14 for pi. They can be accurate to three significant figures only. It also appears that you did not include the area of the base in 1(b)
