The radius of the small circle A is one-half the radius of the large circle B.WHat is the ratio of the area of the small circle to the area of the large circle?

  • Math -

    Why not just pick two values of r
    say: r = 3 and r = 6
    area of small = 9π
    area of larger = 36π

    You will find that the ratio of small circle : large circle = 1 : 4 , no matter what numbers you pick
