The circumference of a circle is 4 times the circumference of a circle with a radius 1 unit less. What is the radius of each circle?

radius of larger circle  r
radius of smaller circle  r1
circumf of large  2πr
circumf of smaller = 2π(r10
but 2πr = 4(2π(r1))
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, 
HATS OFF ! Amazing is a less adjective for you. Thank you.
