#### Solution

The formula of the curved surface area of a cone with base radius ‘r’ and slant height ‘l’ is given as

Curved Surface Area = pirl

Now there are two cones with base radius, slant height and Curved Surface Area (C.S.A) as r_1,l_1, C.S.A_1 & r_2, l_2,c,S,A_2 respectively.

It is given that C.S.A_1  = 2(c,S,A_2 ) and also that l_2 = 2(l_1). Or this can also be written as

(l_2)/(l_1)=2

(C.S.A_1) / (C.S.A_2) = (pir_1l_1)/(pir^2l^2)

2(C.S.A_2) / (C.S.A_2) = (pir_1l_1)/(pir^2l^2)

r_1/r_2=(2l_2)/l_1

r_1/r_2=((2)(2))/1

r_1/r_2=4/1

Is there an error in this question or solution?
