I did this:

1. Find r from the volume of the cylinder
2.sub it into the SA of the hemisphere and cylinder (-one circular face)
3. Add them together and I got 200cm^2 🤔

This is what i did
1.) find r the way you did
2.)sub into cyilinder SA to find it
3.)sub into sphere and divide by 2 as its half a sphere
4.) it said total surface area so i worked out area of the circle in the sphere
5.) then worked out area of the 2 circles in the cylinder
6.) add them together to get 347.83

But the circle on the sphere and one of the circles on the cylinder aren’t part of the surface area

1.) it said total surface area, the are of the hemisphere is only the curved surface area so you need to work out area of the circle at the bottom of it as well
2.) i added those areas as i was told the surface area was 348 so i assumed you had to add that to get 348
3.)we need @IsMo987 to sho the working out at the back of the book for that question

I feel like the answer in the book is wrong because you wouldn’t add internal surfaces into the surface area calculation

thats why we need the working out to justify it.
