The area of one circle is four times as large as a smaller circle with a radius of 3 inches. The radius of the larger circle is
A. 12 inches. B. 9 inches. C. 8 inches. D. 6 inches. 
D. The area of the circle with a radius of 3 is pr2 = p × r2 = 9p. The area of the larger circle is 4 × 9p = 36p. Therefore, r2 = 36, so r = √36 = 6. The radius of the larger circle is 6.
