Creation of this resource was inspired by this Open Middle problem from Jason Miller.
Shown below is a

**cylinder**. For simplicity, let's use positive integers 1-9 to serve as possible**radius**and**height**values for this cylinder. Given this, create a cylinder whose lateral area is given. Use the**r**and**h**sliders to alter the radius and height (respectively). The number of possible outcomes (due to our use of only single digit positive integers for**r**and**h**) is also shown.
