This post received KUDOS
Radius of small circle = r , Area of small circle =\(\pi\)\(r^2\) Radius of large circle = 2r,Area of large circle =4\(\pi\)\(r^2\)
Area of shaded region = Area of large circle  Area of small circle = 4\(\pi\)\(r^2\)  \(\pi\)\(r^2\) = 3\(\pi\)\(r^2\)
Ratio of Area of shaded region to Area of small circle = 3\(\pi\)\(r^2\) / \(\pi\)\(r^2\) = 3
Answer is (C) 3:1

Area of Circle = \(2 \pi r\) Required Ratio = \(\frac{Area of Shaded Region}{Area of Smaller Circle}\)  eq 1
Let r be the radius of smaller circle. Let R be the radius of larger circle.
Area of shaded region = \(2 \pi R^2  2 \pi r^2\)
Given that, R = 2r
Substituting values in eq 1
\(\frac{(2 \pi (2r)^{2}  2 \pi r^2)}{2 \pi r^2}\)
\(\frac{2 \pi r^2 (41)}{2 \pi r^2}\)
\(\frac{3}{1}\)
Ratio = 3: 1
Ans : Option C

Let the radius of smaller circle be r. Then the radius of bigger circle will be 2r. Area of smaller circle will be πr2 and that of bigger circle will be 4πr2. Area of shaded region will be 4πr2  πr2 = 3πr2 Ratio of shaded region to smaller circle will be 3πr2:πr2 = 3:1 Option C is correct

C)
Area of larger circle = pi*2r^2 = 4*pi*r^2 Area of smaller circle = pi*r^2
Area of shaded region = 4*pi*r^2  (pi*r^2) = 3*pi*r^2
ratio = 3*pi*r^2/pi*r^2 = 3/1

(A) 10:1 (B) 9:1 (C) 3:1 (D) 2:1 (E) 1:1 We can let the radius of the small circle = r, and thus the radius of the large circle = 2r. Let’s first determine the area of the shaded region: area = (radius of large circle^2  radius of small circle^2)π area = [(2r)^2  r^2)π area = (4r^2  r^2)π = (3r^2)π We also see that the area of the smaller circle is πr^2. Thus, the ratio of the shaded region’s area to the area of the smaller circle is: (3r^2)π/πr^2 = 3/1 = 3 : 1 Answer: C
