Say Radius = 4x

Height = 3x

Slant Height = root [(4x)2 +(3x)2 ]=5x { as it goes to Pythagorean Theorem}

as we know, Area of Base = pie X radius2 =>154=22/7 X 16x2

so solving the eq we get x=1.75cm

Radius=7 , Height =5.25cm, Slant Height =8.75cm

So csa or Curved Surface Area = pie X radius x slant height = 22/7 X 7 X 8.75 x=192.5cm2 (ans)

r=4x; h=3x.

base is circle, area of circle=π*r²=154cm²

22/7*r*r=154(solve it)

r=7cm.

4x=7(as ratio is 4:3) ⇒x=1.75

height=3x=3*1.75=5.25.

C.S.A=π r l

l=∛h²+r²

l=∛(5.25)²+49

l=∛76.5625

l=8.75 cm.

C.S.A=22*8.75*7÷ 7

C.S.A=192.5 cm²
