v = pi r^2 h

= 3.1416 * 7.5^2 * 16

= 1827.44 in^3

a = 2pi*r(r+h)

= 2*3.1416*7.5(7.5+16)

= 1107.41 in^2

Thanks, Steve. I believe we were supposed to convert the 16 inches into centimeters first (which is 40.64 cm, right?) to solve for both V and A and then take our final, not-rounded answer, convert it back into inches, and then round.
