*What is the approximate surface area of a cylinder that has a radius of 6 centimeters and a height of 15 centimeters?*

Approximate? 3 times 12 is 36, then that times 15 which is 360 + 18 = 540

and then just a little more because pi is a little more than 3. Call it **550 cm ^{2}**.

Calculated: 3**.**14 • 12 • 15 = **565 cm ^{2}**.

Hmmm, my approximation wasn't bad. Not real good, but not bad.
