**DanH**, Wednesday, November 26, 2008 at 10:14pmStart with the equation of circumference of a circle:

c = pi x d.

The diamter is 2 x radius. So, the diameter of the first cirlce is 18cm. You know the diameter of the second circle. So, how do the circumferences compare?

**Reiny**, Wednesday, November 26, 2008 at 10:38pmthe circumference of the larger circle is indeed twice as long as that of the smaller one.

but...

the area of the larger circle is 4 times that of the area of the smaller.

Proof:

area of smaller = pi(4.5)^2 = 20.25pi

area of larger = pi(9^2) = 81pi

20.25pi/(81pi) = 1/4
