Explanation

Supply a number for the diameter of Circle D and then find the radius and diameter of the other circle. We chose d = 2 so that we could have a radius of 1.

Compute the area of each circle:
Circle D: Area = \(\pi r^2\) → \(\pi(1)^2\) → \(1\pi\)
Circle C: Area = \(\pi r^2\) → \(\pi(3)^2\) → \(9\pi\)
The area of Circle C is 9 times as large as the area of Circle D.

Hence 9 is the correct answer.
