  1. Start 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?

  3. the 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
