The OP states the ID of the shaft is 72 mm and the wall thickness is 24 mm. It's not clear why you are stuck calculating the OD of the shaft.

Yes there is. Do you know what the terms 'internal diameter' and 'wall thickness' mean? How did you work the problem in the OP without doing this calculation first?
