The MOI goes up with a radius squared relationship. That is, if the same amount of mass is moved twice as far away from the axis of rotation it will have 4x the MOI effect.

I have now actually checked my physics book, the formula is I (second moment of Inertia) = pie x R to the 4th / 4.

Who wrote your book !!!!!
