Radius (r1) of gold region (i.e., 1st circle) 

Given that each circle is 10.5 cm wider than the previous circle.

Therefore, radius (r2) of 2nd circle = 10.5 + 10.5 21 cm

Radius (r3) of 3rd circle = 21 + 10.5

= 31.5 cm

Radius (r4) of 4th circle = 31.5 + 10.5

= 42 cm

Radius (r5) of 5th circle = 42 + 10.5

= 52.5 cm

Area of gold region = Area of 1st circle

Area of red region = Area of 2nd circle − Area of 1st circle

Area of blue region = Area of 3rd circle − Area of 2nd circle

Area of black region = Area of 4th circle − Area of 3rd circle

Area of white region = Area of 5th circle − Area of 4th circle

Therefore, areas of gold, red, blue, black, and white regions are 346.5 cm2, 1039.5 cm2, 1732.5 cm2, 2425.5 cm2, and 3118.5 cm2 respectively.
