Let radius of first circle = $$r_1$$
Let radius of second circle = $$r_2$$

we need to find
$$r_1 + r_2$$

Statement 1 - The sum of the circumferences of the two circles is 30π

Circumference of circle = 2πr
Hence sum of circumferences = $$2π r_1 + 2π r_2$$
$$2π r_1 + 2π r_2$$ = 30π
Hence,
$$r_1 + r_2$$ = 15

Statement 1 is sufficient

Statement 2 -The sum of the areas of the two circles is 125π

Circumference of circle = $$π(r)^2$$
Hence sum of circumferences = $$π(r_1)^2 + π(r_2)^2$$
$$π(r_1)^2 + π(r_2)^2$$ = 125π
Hence,
$$(r_1)^2 + (r_2)^2$$ = 125

Statement 2 is insufficient
