# What is the surface area of the cylinder with height 5in and radius 13in?

Oct 26, 2016

The surface area of the cylinder is $468 \pi$, or approximately $1470.27$ inches squared

#### Explanation:

Surface area of cylinder = $2 \pi \times r \times h$+$\left(2 \pi \times {r}^{2}\right)$
$= 2 \pi r \left(h + r\right)$

Substitute your values: $2 \pi \times 13 \left(5 + 13\right)$
$= 26 \pi \left(18\right)$
$= 468 \pi$
or approximately $14.7027$ inches
