radius of larger circle --- r

radius of smaller circle --- r-1

circumf of large ---- 2πr

circumf of smaller = 2π(r-10

but 2πr = 4(2π(r-1))

2πr = 8πr - 8π

divide each term by π and rearrange equation

-6r = -8

r = 8/6 = 4/3

larger has radius 4/3

smaller has radius 1/3

I will leave the checking up to you,
