# NCERT Class 9 Solutions: Surface Areas and Volumes (Chapter 13) Exercise 13.4 – Part 3

Q-7 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.
