Sylvain brought you this diagram to see if you can help him with it.
Several circles and squares are pictured in the diagram below. How many times larger is the area of the blue square when compared to that of the red square?
You don't need to work any high-level math to figure out the answer.
If you've been trying to solve this one with cold hard math, you might want to try a more simple approach.
If you rotate the middle square 45 degrees as shown in the picture above, the answer becomes apparent.
The middle square has half the area of the large blue square, and the little red square has half the area of the middle square. Therefore, the little red square is one- fourth the size of the blue square.
The blue square is four times the size of the red square.
