How do I find the area of a cylinder if the quiestion says the base has a radiuse of 5 feet using pie 3.14 and the length is 12?

• math -

Hint:
Volume of a cylinder with base radius r and height h is
V=πr²h

• math -

Use this formula.

2 π r2 + 2 π r h

A = 2 * 3.14 * 5^2 + 2 * 3.14 * 5 * 12

Oops. The formula I gave was for the volume.

Thank you, Ms. Sue.
