Hello orangeivYes - the radius of the circumcircle is twice the radius of the incircle, and its area is therefore 4 times as great. Here's why:

- Draw a diagram showing an equilateral triangle with its incircle and circumcircle - the two circles you refer to in your question.

- Draw the three medians of the triangle. They meet at a point, G say, which divides the line joining each vertex of the triangle to the mid-point of the opposite side in the ratio 2:1.

G is the centre of both circles, and the ratio of their radii is therefore this same ratio 2:1.
