# The height of a right circular cylinder is 10.5 cm. If three times the sum of the areas of its two circular faces is twice the area of the curved surface area. Find the radius of its base. - Mathematics

The height of a right circular cylinder is 10.5 cm. If three times the sum of the areas of its two circular faces is twice the area of the curved surface area. Find the radius of its base.

#### Solution

$\text{ Let r be the radius of the circular cylinder } .$
$\text{ Height, h = 10 . 5 cm }$
$\text{ Area of the curved surface, } S_1 = 2\pi r h$
$\text{ Sum of the areas of its two circular faces, } S_2 = 2\pi r^2$
$\text{ According to question } :$
$3 S_2 = 2 S_1$
$3 \times 2 \pi r^2 = 2 \times 2\pi rh$
$6r = 4h$
$3r = 2h$
$r = \frac{2}{3} \times 10 . 5 cm$
$= 7 cm$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
