NCERT Class 9 Solutions: Surface Areas and Volumes (Chapter 13) Exercise 13.4 – Part 3
Q7 The diameter of the moon is approximately one fourth of the diameter of the earth. Find the ratio of their surface areas.
Solution:

Consider the diameter of earth be and that of the moon will be

Radius of the earth

Radius of the moon
Ratio of their surface area
So, the ratio of their surface areas.
