1. The length of the larger rectangle is 4, and the smaller one is 2. The width of the large rectangle is 2, and the smaller one is 1.

4/2 = 2/1 = 2

The scale factor of the similar figures is ** 2:1 **(**B**)

2. The square has area of 144 cm^2, meaning that it has side length 12. This means that the diameter of the circle is 12, so the radius is 6

The formula for the area of a circle is πr^2.

Area = π36, or 36π cm^2 (**E**)
