**Question:**

**Two circles \( k_1 \) and \( k_2 \) intersect in such a way that outside their intersection is 10% of the area of the circle \( k_1 \) and 60% the area of the circle \( k_2 \). What is the ratio of the radii of the circles \( k_1 \) and \( k_2 \)? What is the sum of the radii if the area of the figure is \( 94\pi \)?**

**Answer:**

Since, outside their intersection is 10% of the area of the circle \( k_1 \) and 60% the area of the circle \( k_2 \),

\( \therefore \) 90%(\( \pi r_1^2 \))=40%(\( \pi r_2^2 \))

\( 9\pi r_1^2=4\pi r_2^2 \)

\( \frac{r_1^2}{r_2^2}=\frac{4}{9} \) ____________ (1)

\( \frac{r_1}{r_2}=\frac{2}{3} \)

\( r_1:r_2=2:3 \)

From (1),

\( r_1^2=\frac{4}{9}r_2^2 \) _________________ (2)

Now, the area of figure is \( 94\pi \).

\( \therefore \) \( \pi r_1^2 \)+40% (\( \pi r_2^2 \))=94\( \pi \)

\( \therefore r_1^2+\frac{2}{5}r_2^2=94 \)

\( \therefore\frac{4}{9}r_2^2+\frac{2}{5}r_2^2=94 \)

\( \therefore\frac{38}{45}r_2^2=94 \)

\( \therefore r_2^2=111.32 \)

\( \therefore r_2=10.55 \)

\( \therefore r_1^2=\frac{4}{9}\times 111.32 \)

\( \therefore r_1^2=49.48 \)

\( \therefore r_1=7.03 \)

\( \therefore r_1+r_2=7.03+10.55=17.58 \)
