# A cylinder

A cylinder 108 cm high has a circumference of 24 cm. A string makes exactly 6 complete turns around the cylinder while its two ends touch the cylinder's top and bottom. (forming a spiral around the cylinder).

How long is the string in cm?

Finding the length of the string is the same as finding the length of the hypotenuse of a triangle with a height of 48 cm and a base of a number of turns*circumference
