Spinning Skater

An ice skater is standing with his arms wide, spinning on the tip of one skate. By pulling his arms in, his moment of inertia is reduced to 60% of its original value.

If \(K\) is the original rotational kinetic energy of the skater and \(W\) is the work done in pulling in his arms, what is the ratio \(W:K\)?
