## Text Solution

Reasoning:

A hemisphere is half of a sphere having one circular surface at the top.

$$∴$$  Total surface area of a hemisphere is the half area of sphere and the top circular $${\rm{area}} = 3\pi {r^2}$$

What is known?

What is unknown?

Total surface area of the hemisphere.

Steps:

Radius of the hemisphere$$(r) = 10 \rm\,cm$$

Total Surface area

\begin{align} &= 3\pi {r^2}\\&= 3 \times 3.14 \times 10 \times 10\\&= 942\,\,\rm{cm^2} \end{align}

Total surface area of the hemisphere $$= 942\,\rm{cm^2}$$
