(1) The area of circle Y is \(100\pi\) ft^2.
(2) The circumference of circle Y is \(20\pi\) ft


Since we know the relationship between R1 and R2 of the two circles..

2*pi*R2 = 0.5 * 2*pi*R1

Anything that gives R1 will give us R2.

Hence option (D) is our answer without solving for the actual values of anything.

Answer is B
1 stmt gives 2 output
2 stmt gives correct radius which will be calcuated for Area of Circle X

Yes statement 1 gives two output ..\(r^2 = 100...\) r = 10 or -10
But we are looking at radius and it cannot be NEGATIVE so r = 10

Cx = 2 pi r
Cy = pi r

Statement 1
Ay=100 pi
also, Ay=C^2/4 pi ==> 100 pi = pi^2 r^2/4 pi ==>r = +/- 20, but radius will be positive so r=20

Statement 2

gives us the same info as statement 1

Cy=20 pi = pi r ==> r=20

Therefore ans is D
