1. To calculate the curved surface area of the cone, we need to know the base radius R.

The slant height (L) of a cone is 13 cm
The vertical height (H) is 12 cm
Use Pythagoras theorem to find the radius of the base, R
R² = L² - H²
R = sqrt(13²-12²)
=5

The curved surface area of a cone is the product πRL = π*5*13 = 65π

To this, we should add the surface area of the base, equal to πR².
