##### Method of solving this CAT Question from Triangles: Find the ratio of the radius of the circle and the side of the triangle and you are through!!

Let radii of each circle be ‘a’.
Distance PQ = 2a.
Draw PM perpendicular to AB
∠MAP = 30° MP = a , AM =√3 a
After this we are done.
Area of circle = πa2
Area of equilateral triangle = $$frac{√3}{4}\\$ *$2a + 2a√3)2
= a2 (6+4√3)
Ratio = π : (6+4√3)

The question is "What is the ratio of the areas of one circle to that of the triangle?"

##### Hence, the answer is π : (6+4√3)

Choice A is the correct answer.
