$$\frac{πr_A^2}{πr_B^2} = \frac{4}{1}$$

$$\frac{r_A}{r_B} =\frac{2}{1}$$

or $$r_A = 2r_B$$.

Circumference = $$\frac{2πr_A}{2πr_B}$$ = $$\frac{2}{1}$$

Ratio of Area of two similar figures = (Ratio of corresponding dimension$$)^2$$

i.e. Ratio of Radius of two circles$$^2$$ = 4/1

i.e. Ratio of Radius of two circles= 2/1
