    the area of the large semi-circle is \[A = 1/2 \pi r^2\] the 2 small semi-circles has the same radius r/2 and combined have the area of a whole circle \[A=\pi (r/2)^2 = 1/4 \pi r^2\]

    Are of each part is: \[1/2(1/2\pi r ^{2})\]

    So would the answer be \[A= 1/4\pi r ^{2}\] ?

    the green shaded area is A = 1/4 pi r^2 that appears to be the only area you need to find
