From the figure it may be inferred that AB = 5

i.e. Diameter of Circle = 5

$$Area = πr^2 = π(5/2)^2 = (25/4)π$$

As shown in the attachment:
Diameter of red circle is $$D=2+3=5$$
so radius is $$r=\frac{5}{2}$$
Area of circle is $$A=πr^2$$
$$A=π*(\frac{5}{2})^2$$
$$A= \frac{25π}{4}$$

Since the diameter of circle AB is 5, the radius is 5/2, and thus the area is (5/2)^2 x ? = 25?/4.
