  3. What fraction of the areaof a circle is occupied by another circle of half the radius? • one-quarter • One third • 1/π

  4. How many solid spheres of diameter one inch are needed to balance one sphere of the same material of radius two inches? • 2 • 4 • 8

  5. How much paint is needed to paint eight one-inch spheres compared to one two-inch sphere? • The same amount • Twice as much • Four times as much

  6. The surface area of your lungs is approximately: • 5 square meters • 15 • 25 • 50 • 100

  7. A flea the size of a man could jump about: • 1 meter • 10 • 100
