A toy is in the form of a cone of radius 3.5 cm mounted on a hemisphere of same radius. The total height of the toy is 15.5 cm. Find the total
surface area of the toy.

We have,

Radius of the hemisphere = Radius of the cone = r = 3.5 cm and

Height of the cone = 15.5 - 3.5 = 12 cm


The slant height of the cone,` "l" = sqrt("h"^2 +"r"^2)`'

`= sqrt(12^2+3.5^2)`



=12.5  cm


Total surface area of the toy = CSA of cone + CSA of hemisphere

`=pi"rl" + 2pi"r"^2`



`=11xx(12.5 + 7)`


=214.5 cm

So, the total surface area of the toy is 214.5 cm2.
