Ok so the area of a circle=pir^2 if one is 2 times anotherthe radiouses arer and p2 are added to 80pi so pir^2+pi(2r)^2=80piundistribute pipi(r^2+(2r)^2)=80pidivide both sides of the pir^2+(2r)^2=80do the exponent(2r)^2=4r^2, so you haver^2+4r^2=80add as terms5r^2=80divide both sides by 5 r^2=16square root of both sidesr=42r=8radii are 4m 8m
