Two small semicircles of the same size have equal diameters.

Semicircle NPQ has diameter NQ = 5
The other small semicircle has diameter (LN)=5

Large semicircle LRQ intercepts both equally-sized small semicircles. Thus, one small semicircle's diameter =

Area of large semicircle LRQ:
$$\frac{\pi r^2}{2} = \frac{\pi 5^2}{2}=\frac{25\pi}{2}$$

LRQ is a semicircle of radius 5. Therefore, the area of LRQ is 1/2 x π x 5^2 = 25π/2.
