# The diameter of a circle whose area is equal to the sum of the areas of the two circles of radii 24 cm and 7 cm isA. 31 cmB. 25 cmC. 62 cmD. 50 cm

Area of first circle = πr2 = π(24)2 = 576π m2

Area of second circle = πr2 = π(7)2 = 49π m2

Now, we are given that,

Area of the circle = Area of first circle + Area of second circle

πR2 = 576π +49π

(where, R is the radius of the new circle)

πR2 = 625π

R2 = 625

R = 25

Radius of the circle = 25cm

Thus, diameter of the circle = 2R = 50 cm.
