Regarding 20 :-

*Radius and slant height of a solid right circular cone are in the ratio 3:5. If the curved surface area, square centimeters, then find the total surface area.*

Logically, the total surface area is greater that the curved surface area.

I get

square centimeters, or approximatly 302 square centimeters.22. If

are the roots of the equation , find the value of .23. If the area of the triangle ABC is 12 square units and the vertices are A(a,-3), B(3,a) and C(-1,5) taken in order, find the value of 'a'.
