Let the radius of the cylinder be 2x cm and its height be 3x cm. 

Then,Volume of the cylinder`=pi"r"^2"h"`





`=> 22/7xx12x^3 = 1617`


`=> x^3=(7/2xx7/2xx7/2)`

`=> x^3 = (7/2)^3`

`=> x = 7/2`

Now, r = 7 cm and `"h" = 21/2  "cm"`

Hence,the total surface area of the cylinder:

(2πrh + 2πr2)

= 2πr(h + r)

`= 2xx22/7xx7xx(21/2+7)"cm"^`

`= (2xx(22)/7xx7xx(35)/2) "cm"^2 `

= 770 cm
