Radius of circular end of cylinder pen holder = 3 cm 

Height of pen holder = 10.5 cm 

Surface area of 1 pen holder =`"CSA of penholder+Area of base of SA of 1 penholder"= 2pirh+pir^2` 


= `2xx3.14xx3xx10.5+3.14138` 

= `132xx1.5+198/7cm` 



Area of car board sheet used by 1 competitor = `1584/7 cm^2` 

Area of car board sheet used by 35 competitors=`1584/735cm^2=7920cm^2` 


Concept: Surface Area of Cylinder
  Is there an error in this question or solution?
