    What's the volume in terms of h and r? Use this to get your equation for surface area entirely in terms of r (by re-rranging the volume formula for h and then plugging h into your surface area formula)

    Then you can differentiate your surface formula which is now solely in terms of r with respect to r and then find the stationary points.
