A right circular cylinder with no top has a volume of 50 cubic meters. Find the radius that will yield minimum surface area. Let x = radius.

Hi, I have been stuck on this rational function question for hours. I tried plugging in 50 for the volume in the volume of a cylinder formula but I still can't seem to find the answer. Please help.
