Problem 15
A block of wood has the shape of a right circular cylinder with radius and height , and its entire surface has been painted blue. Points and are chosen on the edge of one of the circular faces of the cylinder so that on that face measures . The block is then sliced in half along the plane that passes through point , point , and the center of the cylinder, revealing a flat, unpainted face on each half. The area of one of these unpainted faces is , where , , and are integers and is not divisible by the square of any prime. Find .
