the ? says "a cone has the surface area of 160 sq. in. If the dimensions are reduced by 1/2,what is the surface area of the new cone?" i just cant seem to find the formula for the surface area of the cone.

Surface area cone:

TOP: 1/2 (circumfirance of bottom x height)
= 1/2 (PI*radius x height)
So if you ignore the bottom of the cone, then reducing the dimensions by 1/2...

thanks for helping me
