| **The diameter of the planet Mars is 6.8 thousand km. How many times is the equatorial circumference of the Earth larger than the equatorial circumference of Mars?**

We define the length of the circle by the formula L = πd

L Earth = 3.14 × 12 750 km = 40,035 km

LMarsa = 3.14 × 6 800 km = 21 352 km

L Earth: L Mars = 40 035: 21 352 = 1.88 times

Answer: the equatorial circumference of the Earth is 1.88 times larger than the equatorial circumference of Mars.
