h=6r=2

The surface area of a cylinder is equal to the sum of the areas of the bases each having an area of π⋅r2, plus the area of the side. The area of the side is equal to the area of a rectangle with length 2πr (the circumference of the base) times the height.

2π⋅(radius)2+2π⋅(radius)⋅(height)

Substitute the values of the radius r=2 and height h=6 into the formula. Pi π is approximately equal to 3.14.

2(π)(2)2+2(π)(2)(6)

Multiply 2 by (2)2 by adding the exponents.

Move (2)2.

(2)2⋅2π+2(π)(2)(6)
