We have two squares. The ratio of the perimeter of the big square to the perimeter of the little square is 5 : 2. What is the ratio of the area of the big square to the area of the little square?

I don't know where to start

I have feeling you have to split the ratio into fourths then I'm not sure where to go from there

If the ratio of the perimeter of the squares is 5:2

Then .. What is the ratio of the sides of the squares. Draw a pick and think about it. I'll continue after you answer.

Hint:

5:2 is the same as 20:8 Do you see why?

20:8 is easier to work with.

Let the squares have a perimeter of 20 and 8 respecively. How long are the sides.?
