 ```To the nearest hundredth, find the surface area of a cone whose slant height is 9 cm and that has a base with radius 6 cm``` Subject: Re: Surface area of cone Answered By: deadlychiapet-ga on 20 Jul 2004 18:20 PDT Rated: ```Hi there, The equation for the surface area of a cone (not including the base) is A=Pi*r^2+Pi*r*s where Pi=3.14159, r=radius, and s=slant height. If you have the height instead of the slant height you can use the equation A=Pi*r*(r+(r^2+h^2)^(1/2)) So, for your equation: A=Pi*6^2+Pi*6*9 =Pi*36+Pi*54 =282.74 Additional resources: Surface Area of a Cone - WebCalc http://www.webcalc.net/calc/0040.php Deriving the Surface Area of a Cone http://www.rdrop.com/~half/Creations/Puzzles/ConeArea/ Math Question #39 - Surface area of a Cone http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/p_test/math_9/math_p_q39.html Hope that answers your question!
