**jai**, Thursday, November 11, 2010 at 9:13pmVolume of a cylinder = area of the base * height, or:

V = pi*(r^2)*h

therefore,

V = pi*(5^2)*4

V = pi*25*4

simplify this. units is in cubic units.

Volume of cube is s^3,, solving for the length of one side:

V = 27 = s^3

cuberoot(27) = s

s = 3 inches

Surface area of cube = 6*area of each face, or:

SA = 6*(s^2)

therefore,

SA = 6*(3^2)

simplify this. units is in square inches.

hope this helps. :)
