# Radius of Mars is 14% of the radius of Neptune. If radius of Mars is 3396.2km, what is the radius of Neptune?

Radius of Neptune is $24258.6$ $k m .$

#### Explanation:

Radius of Mars is $3396.2$ $k m .$

As it is 14% of radius of Neptune, this means that if Mars' radius is 14%, Neptune's radius is 100%.

if 14% is $3396.2$ $k m .$

1% is $\frac{3396.2}{14}$ $k m .$

and 100% is $\frac{3396.2}{14} \times 100 = 24258.6$ $k m .$

Hence, radius of Neptune is $24258.6$ $k m .$
