For a can with both ends closed, Area reqd. = 2¡Çrh + 2¡Çr^2 where r=6,h=4 and assume ¡Ç=22/7, A=2640/7 sq in.

If one end of the can is open then A=2¡Çrh + ¡Çr^2 = 264 sq in.

Area of circle = πr^2

Multiply by 2 to get top and bottom.

Circumference = 2πr

Area of side = 4 *2πr

Combine the data.
