Circles Abound! (Posted on 2004-06-16) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Begin with one BLACK circle, and inscribe 4 identical, interior, cyclically tangent, CYAN circles, such that they are also tangent to the black circle.

In each of the four cyan circles, inscribe 4 RED interior circles in exactly the same way.

Finally, inscribe a small GREEN circle in the center of the original black circle, tangent to the cyan circles.

Which is larger, this small green circle, or one of the small red circles?
