# There Are Two Cones. the Curved Surface Area of One is Twice that of the Other. the Slant Height of the Later is Twice that of the Former. Find the Ratio of Their Radii. - CBSE Class 9 - Mathematics

ConceptSurface Area of a Right Circular Cone

#### Question

There are two cones. The curved surface area of one is twice that of the other. The slant height of the later is twice that of the former. Find the ratio of their radii.

#### Solution

Let curved surface area off 1^st cone = 2x

CSA of 2^nd cone=x

"and slant height of 1 ^st cone=h "

"and slant height of 2 ^nd cone = 2h"

"CSA of 1^st cone" / "CSA of 2^nd cone"=(2x)/x=2/1

⇒ (pir_1l_1)/(pir_2l_2)=2/1

⇒ r_1h/r_2h=2/1⇒r_1/r_2=4/1

Is there an error in this question or solution?
