In the figure above, the smaller circle is inscribed in the square and the square is inscribed in the larger circle. If the length of each side of the square is s, what is the ratio of the area of the larger circle to the area of the smaller circle?

Area of an circle inscribed in a square = $$(Pi/4)*Area of the square$$
= $$(Pi/4)*S^2$$

Area of a circle circumscribed in a square = (Pi/2)*Area of the square
= $$(Pi/2)*S^2$$

ratio of the area of the larger circle to the area of the smaller circle = $$((Pi/2)*S^2)/((Pi/4)*S^2)$$ = 2:1

Option B is correct

diameter of smaller circle ; s and radius s/2

diameter of larger circule : s sqrt2 ; radius s/sqrt2

so area : pi * s^2 /2 * 4/s^2
solving we get 2:1 IMO B
