Answer:

#(50 - 4pi)/(π) =h ~~ 11.92 "inches"#

Explanation:

Formula for the surface of a closed cylinder is:

#A_"surface" = 2pir^2 + 2πrh#

so yours is:

#A = 100#

#r=2#

Solve:

#100 = 2π2^2 + 2πh#

#100 - 2π4 = 2πh#

#(100 - 8pi)/(2π) =h#

#(2(50 - 4pi))/(2π) =h#

#(50 - 4pi)/(π) =h#

#(50 - 4pi)/(π) =h ~~ 11.92 "inches"#
