A circular tub has a band painted around the circumference. What is the surface area of this painted band?

( 1) x = 0.5
( 2) The height of the tub is 1 meter

How can surface area of a band be the product of the circumference of the band and the width of the band?

Perimeter * Width = Area , what planet am I on?

The formula for surface area in this case would be equal to that for a cylinder. Discounting the base of the tub: consider it to be cylindrical.

If you cut the cylinder vertically, and open it, it would resemble a rectangle.

Area of rectangle = Length * Breadth

In this case Length = circumference;

Breadth = 1 m

Hence the surface area of the Band = Circumference * Height

Hi [#permalink] New post 04 Aug 2003, 06:32
Your explanation isn't quite correct.

Length does not equal circumference.

Refine it, the answer is E.
