+1 for A.

Area W = 16π = πR^2 ---> Solving R = 4
Area Z = 4π = πr^2 ---> Solving r = 2

Circumference of W / Circumference of Z = (2*π*R) / (2*π*r) = (2*π*4) / (2*π*2) = 2/1

Hence, A.

D. 16 to 1
E. 32 to 1



Area of circle w = 16π

So, π r^2 = 16 π

r = 4.


Area of circle z = 4π

So, πr^2 = 4π

r = 2.

Ratio of the circumference = circumference of w / circumference of z

= 2πr / 2πr

= 4 / 2

= 2 : 1

The best answer is A

\(W = 16π\) ; So \(R = 4\)

\(Z = 4π\) ; So \(r = 2\)

We know Ratio of Circumferences is The ratio of the Radii ( As , \(2πR: 2πr = R:r)\)

Thus, the ratio of the circumference of W to the circumference of Z is \(4 : 2 = 2:1\) , Answer must be (A)

We must first determine the radius of each circle. Letting R = the radius of circle W and r = the radius of circle Z, we have:

πR^2 = 16π

R^2 = 16

R = 4

and

πr^2 = 4π

r^2 = 4

r = 2

Using the circle circumference formula C = 2πr, we see that the circumference of circleW is 2πR = 2π(4) = 8π, and the circumference of circle Z is 2πr = 2π(2) = 4π. Thus, the ratio of the circumference of W to the circumference of Z is

8π/4π = 2/1

Answer: A
