The lateral surface area of a cylinder is 80% of its surface area. What is the ratio between the base radius and the height of the cylinder?

The total surface area is ( 2* pi *  r ) ( r  + h)

 

The lateral surface area is (2 * pi * r ) * h  =  .80  ( 2 * pi * r) ( r + h)     

 

Divide out 2* pi * r  from both sides and we have that

 

h  = .80 ( r + h)   simplify    

 

h = .80r + .80h        

 

h - .80 h =  .80r

 

.20 h  = .80 r     divide both sides by .80

 

(1/4) h =  r       divide  both sides by h

 

(1/4)  = r / h        [ the base radius is 1/4 the height ]
