area=area of rectangle + area of the semicircle radius of the semicircle is half the side y $r=\frac{y}{2}=\frac{12}{2}=6ft$ Now just add the area's $A=xy+\frac{\pi.r^2}{2}$ Note since it's a semi circle we are taking it's area as half of a full circle and area of rectangle is of course length times width

calculate the area of the rectangle and area of the semi circle and add those up for total area, does that make sense?
