Why don't you take a radius of 1 and a radius of 2 and then compare their surface areas? :)

2. ParthKohli

$$\color{Black}{\Rightarrow Area(Sphere ) = 4\pi r^2 }$$

3. rtraylor3

I tried that. I got 1:4.

4. ParthKohli

$$\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \textbf{Radius of 1}: 4\pi r ^2 \Longrightarrow 4\pi }$$ $$\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \textbf{Radius of 2}:4\pi r^2 \Longrightarrow 16\pi }$$ 1:4 is correct~!
