Please help me answer this question

The cylinder can be made from steel. The top will be open and the thickness of the steel will be 0.5ft thick, making up the walls and the bottom. Steel can be purchased for $0.29 per kilogram and has a density of 7.95g/cm3. What is the cost of the steel to the nearest dollar?

Btw the surface area of the cylinder is 3456π ft2 and the volume is 26973π ft3

Could it be that you have the values of the area and volume reversed? That would give a real solution of 164.1 feet for the radius, and then following the steps I outlined you could find the amount of steel you need.
