a solid right cylinder is 18 cm high and the radius of the base is 7 cm .two equal right cones are drilled on the plane faces of the cylinder , height of each cone being1/3rd the height of the cylinder and the radius of base of each cone being equal to base of the cylinder . find the total surface  area of the remaining solid

Dear Student,

The following figure can be drawn based on the statements given.

 Total surface area of the solid left = total surface area of cylinder - 2×Total surface area of cones
Total Surface area of cyclinder= 2πr(h+r)putting values in the aboave formula we getTotal Surface area of cyclinder= 2×227×7×(18+7)=44×25=1100

Total surface area of the cone=πr2+πrl
