#### Question

The sum of the radii of two circles is 140 cm and the difference of their circumferences in 88 cm. Find the diameters of the circles.

#### Solution

Let radius of circles be 𝑟_{1}𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑟_{2}

Given sum of radius = 140cm

𝑟_{1} + 𝑟_{2} = 140 …..(i)

difference in circumferences = 88 𝑐𝑚

2 × 𝑟_{1} − 2𝜋𝑟_{2} = 88

`2 × 22/7 (r_1 − r_2) 88`

`r_1-r_2 = (88xx7)/(2xx22) = 14`

`r_1 = r_2 +14`….(ii)

(𝑖𝑖)𝑖𝑛 (𝑖) ⇒ `r_1 + r_2 +14 =140`

⇒ 2𝑟_{2} = 126

⇒ 𝑟_{2} = `126/2` = 63𝑐𝑚𝑠

𝑟_{2} = 63𝑐𝑚𝑠 𝑖𝑛 (𝑖𝑖) 𝑟_{1} = 63 + 14 = 77 𝑐𝑚𝑠

Diameter of circle (i) = 2𝑟_{1} = 2 × 77 = 154 𝑐𝑚𝑠

Diameter of circle (ii) = 2𝑟_{2} = 2 × 63 = 126 𝑐𝑚𝑠
