Let the radius of circle F be x; radius of circle G will be 3x/4; radius of circle H will be x/2
Area of shaded region is 9x^2/16 - x^2/4 = 5x^2/16 (pie)
Shaded region part is 5/16 part of area of circle F
D

let the radius of circle F be \(12\)

so radius of circle G \(=12*\frac{3}{4}=9\) and radius of circle H \(= 9*\frac{2}{3}=6\)

Area of shaded region = Area of circle G-Area of circle H\(= π9^2-π6^2 = 45π\)

Area of circle F \(= π12^2=144π\)

Area of shaded region to area of circle F \(= \frac{45π}{144π}=\frac{5}{16}\)

Option D

Radii for H, G, and F:

\(H = \frac{2}{3}G\)
\(\frac{H}{G}=\frac{2}{3}\)
\(H = 2, G = 3\)

\(G = \frac{3}{4}F\)
\(3=\frac{3}{4}F\)
\(F = 4\)

Area of H = \(\pi*r^2= 4\pi\)
Area of G = \(9\pi\)
Area of F = \(16\pi\)

Shaded region's area = (Area of G) - (Area of H)
\((9\pi - 4\pi) = 5\pi\)

Area of the shaded region is what part of the area of circle F?
\(\frac{5\pi}{16\pi}=\frac{5}{16}\)
