Expert Answer:

begin mathsize 14px style straight R equals ρl over straight A therefore straight R subscript 1 over straight R subscript 2 equals fraction numerator straight l subscript 1 divided by straight A subscript 1 over denominator straight l subscript 2 divided by straight A subscript 2 end fraction equals fraction numerator straight l subscript 1 straight A subscript 2 over denominator straight l subscript 2 straight A subscript 1 end fraction space space space space space space space space space space because straight l subscript 2 equals 1 half straight l subscript 1 space space space space space straight A subscript 2 equals 2 straight A subscript 1 therefore straight R subscript 1 over straight R subscript 2 equals fraction numerator straight l subscript 1 space 2 straight A subscript 1 over denominator left parenthesis 1 divided by 2 right parenthesis straight l subscript 1 space straight A subscript 1 end fraction straight R subscript 1 over straight R subscript 2 equals 4 therefore straight R subscript 2 equals straight R subscript 1 over 4 end style
