A cylinder has a surface area of 360pi, and is 3 units tall. What is the diameter of the cylinder's circular base?

P.S. Does anybody know the sign for pi on the keyboard or GMAT Club tools?
Thanks

The surface are of a cylinder is \(2(\pi{r^2}) + 2\pi{rh}\) --> \(2(\pi{r^2}) + 6\pi{r}=360\pi\) --> \(r^2+3r-180=0\) --> \(r=-15\) (discard) or \(r=12\) --> \(d=24\)

\(2(\pi{r^2}) + 6\pi{r}=360\pi\) --> reduce by \(2\pi\): \(r^2+3r=180\) --> \(r^2+3r-180=0\) --> \((r+15)(r-12)=0\).

Hope it's clear.
