Area Of Inner circle with radius "r" = 80/100 * Area of outer circle with radius "R"
\(\pi * r^2 = \frac{80}{100} * \pi * R^2\)
cancel pi and take square root on both sides
\(r = \sqrt\frac{8}{10} * R\)
\(\frac{r}{R} = \frac{2}{\sqrt5}\)
Multiply \(2*\pi\) in numerator and denominator of LHS to get the circumference
\(\frac{2*\pi*r}{2*\pi*R} = \frac{2}{\sqrt5}\)

Answer: B

I don't get r=810−−√∗Rr=810∗R
rR=25√

How did we get that value? magbot

given, the area of C1 is 80% of C2

lets put it this way,

C1/C2=80/100

thus, pi*R1*R1/pi*R2*R2= 80/100


R1square/R2square=4/5


R1/R2=2/root5


for crcmfrnc


2piR1/2piR2=2/root5


or 2/root5
