A molasses can is made up with a cylindrical base having a radius of 6 cm that is topped by a smaller cylindrical pouring spout with a radius 2 cm. When upright the top of the molasses is 14 cm above the base of the can but when turned over the top of the molasses is 15 cm above the base. Find the total height of the can in cm.

I do not get this question.

If the bottle is turned over, then it is up-side-down and the molasses is going to be above the top of the can, not above the base..


Anyway, with my interpretation, I get that the spout is 1.125cm high but nothing else can be determined.
