What is the ratio of the smaller circle's area to the larger circle's area?

Give your answer in fully simplified form. It should look like "x:y", where x and y are replaced by integers.

Pick a number for the smaller circle diameter.....say 2 units....the larger circle diameter is 4

 

Area of circle = pi r^2

 

Smaller/Larger  =   pi 1^2  / pi 2^2  =  1^2/2^2 =   1/4     or   1:4
