Hi bobbym and Denominator,

The solutions #4237 and #4238 are correct. Neat work!

#4239. What is the ratio of total surface area to lateral surface area of a cylinder whose radius is 20 cm and height 60 cm?

#4240. A powder tin has a square base with side 8 cm and height 14 cm. Another tin has a circular base with diameter 8 cm and height 14 cm. Find the difference of their capacities.
