Area of ABCD - Area of the circle (since rectangle includes two halfes of one circle) =
12*16-P*6^2=192-36P

Area of rectangle = (12*16) = 192

Area of two semi-circles = Area of one circle
Radius = $$\frac{1}{2}(12)=6$$
Area = $$πr^2 = 36π$$

(Rectangle area) - (one circle area) = shaded area

$$192 - 36π$$

The Area of the Rectangle is 12 x 16 = 192. The two circular halves. So it is 192-36Phi

We see that the area of the shaded region is the area of rectangle ABCD minus twice the area of a semicircle. In other words, the area of the shaded region is the area of rectangle ABCD minus the area of one circle.

Area of shaded region = area of ABCD - area of one circle

Area of shaded region = 12 x 16 - 6^2 x π

Area of shaded region = 192 - 36π
