February 2015 - Circles Inside Circles
Start with a big circle. Draw two circles with half the radius inside it, so that they touch at the centre of the original circle. Draw a smaller circle tangent to all three. Draw a still smaller circle tangent to the three circles inside the large one. If the area of the smallest circle is 1, what is the area of the biggest circle?
