**Areas related to Circles ncert solutions Chapter 12 Exercise 12.1 Question 2**

**2.** The radii of two circles are 8 cm and 6 cm respectively. Find the radius of the circle having area equal to the sum of the areas of the two circles.

**Solution:**

r1 = 8 cm

r2 = 6 cm

Area of first circle =

Area of second circle =

Sum of areas of two circles =

We want to find radius of circle having area equal to

Therefore,

**cm**
