my answer (not sure)

A(r) = r^2 + 2r + 29 ?

**Reiny**, Monday, November 8, 2010 at 11:27pmThis looks like a continuation of your last problem

Visualize taking a tin can apart.

you would have 2 circles, the top and the bottom

plus the sleeve that forms the can.

Pretend you are opening it up by cutting along the height of the can.

Would you not have a rectangle whose length is the circumference of the circle, and whose width is the height ?

So the total area would be

top + bottom + rectangle

= πr^2 + πr^2 + (2πr)h, where h is the height.

= 2πr^2 + (2πr)h

This is precisely what I used in the previous question.

You will need the height, or else be able to calculate it like in your previous question when the volume was given.
