Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hmm, we would call them both Spheres So the surface area would be \(\large SA = 4\pi r^2\) So the surface area of Earth would be \[\large SA_{Earth} = 4 \pi (\frac{7926}{2})^2 = 197,359,487.489mi^2\] \[\large SA_{Mars} = 4 \pi (\frac{4194}{2})^2 = 55,259,471.237mi^2\] So the difference would be \[\large SA_{Earth}  SA_{Mars} = 197,359,487.489mi^2  55,259,471.237mi^2\] \[\large SA_{Earth}  SA_{Mars} = 142100016.25mi^2 \] Which is rounded to the nearest hundred million mile of \(\large 142,000,000mi^2\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Lol yeah...sorry it took so long to type :P But basically find the surface areas of the 2 and subtract em :)
