Two times?

Smaller circle = pi*r^2
Larger circle = pi*R^2

Given ,

pi*R^2 - pi*r^2 = 3* pi*r^2

R^2 = 4*pi*r^2

R = 2*r

Ratio of circimference = 2*pi*R/2*pi*r = 2

I think it should be 1+ sqrt3 or 1 - sqrt3

Area of the shaded region is : Pi(R-r)^2 = 3 Pi r^2
(R-r)^2 = 3r^2
R-r =rsqrt3
or
R-r = -rsqrt3

If i See the options available for the PS, I might be able to answer it..

Let small circle radius = a
Big circle radius = (a+b)
Area of shaded region = PIE (a+b)^2 - PIE a^2 = PIE b (2a+b).............. (i)
Area of shaded region is thrice that of Area of smaller circle
So, 3 PIE a^2 = PIE b (2a+b)

3a^2 - 2ab - b^2 = 0
Solving above quadratic equation gives a = b
It means radius of bigger circle is twice than radius of smaller circle

Circumference = 2 PIE (radius) means
Circumference of bigger circle is twice than circumference of smaller circle

In the figure shown, if the area of the shaded region is 3 times the area of the smaller circular region, then the circumference of the larger circle is how many times the circumference of the smaller circle?

A. 4
B. 3
C. 2
D. \sqrt{3}
E. \sqrt{2}

The area of the shaded region is area_{shaded}=\pi{R^2}-\pi{r^2} and the area of the smaller circle is area_{small}=\pi{r^2}. Given: \pi{R^2}-\pi{r^2}=3\pi{r^2} --> R^2=4r^2 --> R=2r;

Now, the ratio of the circumference of the larger circle to the that of the smaller circle is \frac{C}{c}=\frac{2\pi{R}}{2\pi{r}}=\frac{{2r}}{{r}}=2.

Answer: C.
