37 of 100: Carved Triangles

Geometry Level 2

If the two triangles above are congruent, equilateral triangles, which is greater, the total area of the three $$\color{red}{\text{red}}$$ regions or the total area of the six $$\color{purple}{\text{purple}}$$ regions?

The circle in figure A is tangent to all sides of the triangle. The center circle of figure B is tangent to the other three circles, which are themselves tangent to the sides of the triangle; those four circles are all congruent.
