Cylinder A has radius r and height h. Cylinder B has radius 2r and height 2h. How many times greater is the surface area of Cylinder B than the surface area of Cylinder A?
I have no idea how to start doing this problem. Are there any tips on how to start?

  1. surface are cylinded = 2*PI*(2r)+2PI*r*h

    that is if the cylinder ends are counted.
    Surface area of lateral surface only: PI*2r*h

    so if it is a cylinder with ends open, now begs the question does the interior surface area matter? If so, double the above.

    if exterior lateral side area only, then Area= PI*2(2r)*2H

    looks like Area quadrupled.
