Surface Area = Lateral area + Base area

=6/2 =3

Slant Height =sqrt[8^+ 3^2]

=8.544

Lateral area=Slant Height x Pi x Radius

=8.544 x 3.141592 x 3

=80.525 units squared

Base Area =Pi x r^2

=3.141592 x 3^2

=28.274 units squared

Surface Area =80.525 + 28.274

=108.8 =~109 units squared.

Note: Because I used Pi to 6 decimal places instead of 2 decimal places, I got the answer closer to 109.
