Let the radius of the small pizza be r, and the radius of the bigger pizza be R. Given \(pi.r^2\) = \(pi.R^2\). Thus R ~ 1.41r. Therefore D = 1.41d as well. = 1.41*10 = 14.10. The nearest whole number from the answer choices is 15. Hence B.

Area of smaller pizza = (\(\pi\)\(10^2\))/ 4, where 10 is the dia of smaller circle.

Area of bigger pizza = twice of area of smaller pizza = (\(\pi\)\(10^2\))/ 2

if r is the radius of bigger pizza.

\(\pi\)\(r^2\) = (\(\pi\)\(10^2\))/ 2

\(r^2\) = 50

r = \(\sqrt{50}\)
diameter = 2r = 10\(\sqrt{2}\)

dia = 14.1416.

nearest value should have been 14. It is not given. So we will choose 15.
B is the answer.

Since √(proportion of area) = proportion of length. If the proportion of area is 2, then we have √2. Hence, the proportion of length becomes approximately 1.5. So, from 10*1.5=15. Thus, the correct answer is B.
