Once upon a time,I tried a lot to solve this problem but didn't find the answer.I think this is not a very tough problem.
If you connect the centers you will get a rhombus
My solution is wrong.

I am not sure about the main solution.

If you connect the centers you will get a rhombus with angles $100,100,80,80$
Than $\tan\theta=\tan {40}=\dfrac {42}{X}\Rightarrow X=50\Rightarrow 2X=\fbox {100}$(about)
Here,
$X$=radius of one big circle.

Your logic is right that if we connect the centers we'll get a rhombus. But how do you get the value of those 4 angles? And I also want to say that 42÷(tan40) is not equal to 50. So, I think that the solution isn't right.

How do you get those angle's value?

I used angle measuring instrument to measure them.

No...no...this isn't the standard of math. You need to prove it.

Yes.I have said that my solution is wrong.I know that.I am not eager to prove this.When I will be intersted I will try to prove.

Why are you not eager to prove this??? This is a very interesting problem.
