Homework Help: Maths

I am very greatefull to you if you guide me to solve this problem.

Two circles touch externally. The sum of their areas is 130π cm2 and the distance between their centers is 14 cm. find the radii of the circles?

I tried to solve this problem like this:

Area of the circle = πr2

130πcm2 = 22/7xrxr
130x22/7 =22/7xrxr
22/7xr2 =130x22/7
r2 =130x22x7/7
r2 = 130x22x7/7x22
r2 =130
r =√130
I tried to do this in the above way. But I couldn't get the answer further.
