### What fraction of the area of a circle of radius 5 lies between concentric circles of radius 3 and 4?

The area of a circle with radius 5 is 25 pi. Concentric circles
with radius 3 and 4 have areas of 9 pi and 16 pi. The concentric
circle with radius four consumes the circle with radius 3. 25 pi
minus 16 pi leaves 9 pi of the circle with radius 5 left over. 16
pi is slightly over three-fifths of the circle with radius 5.

### Is the center of a circle the point of intersection for two concentric circles?

Concentric circles are the circles with the same center
therefore they do not cross with each other as the "center is not
considered a point on the circle". An exception would be two
circles that are concentric and have the same radius, in which case
the circles are indistinct and every point of the circles is an
intersection.
