Nice start, Mathalina!!! Next, you have to simplify equation, you wrote, and solve it for "r"

2(pi)r2 + 2(pi)r(3r) = 402
2(pi)r2 + 6(pi)r2 = 402
8(pi)r2 = 402
pi = 22/7
r2 = (402/8) · (7/22)
r ≈ √15.99 = 3.0 (we use only positive value of the square root, distance cannot be negative)
h = 3r ≈ 9.0 cm
