You need to make a soda can with a volume of 29 cubic inches.

Find the surface area. calculate the following:

a) How much material is needed if the can's radius is 1 inch?

I figured it this way:

Let the height be h

volume = π r²•h

29 = π (1²) • h

h = 29/π

So πr² • 2 + 2π • 29/π

2π + 58 = 64.28 in²

but person who helps me gets it this way:

Let the height be h

volume = π r²h

π (1²)h = 29

h = π /29

the surface area are

= 2 π r²+ 2 π rh

= 2 π (1) + 2 π (1)( π /29)

= 6.96 in²

Can anyone help me and tell me which is correct? I think the problem may

be that I get the volume 29/╥

intead of ╥/29

- geometry/algebra -

If you divide both sides by π, you get:

h = 29/π
