The circumference of two circles are in


The circumference of two circles are in the ratio 2 : 3. Find the ratio of their areas.


Let the radius of two circles beandrespectively. Then their circumferences are and respectively and their areas are and respectively.

It is given that,


$\frac{2 \pi r_{1}}{2 \pi r_{2}}=\frac{2}{3}$


Now we will calculate the ratio of their areas,

$\frac{A_{1}}{A_{2}}=\frac{\pi r_{1}^{2}}{\pi r_{2}^{2}}$



Substituting the value of $\frac{r_{1}}{r_{2}}$,



Hence the ratio of their Areas is $4: 9$.
