MUCH APPRECIATED!! <33

**Problem:**

**You have been hired to paint the Greensboro, Ga. historic water tower green. **

**The tower has a cylindrical base that is 12 feet around and 85 feet high. The top is sphere and is 300 feet around.**

**A gallon can of green paint on average covers 200 ft2(feet squared) and cost about $35 per gallon.**

**How much would it cost to paint the entire water tower?**
