Area of shaded region = Area of square + 3/4 Area of the circle = 6^2+3/4*P*3^2=36 + 27/4*P

Area of square is 6^2 = 36
Area of 3/4 th Circle is \(\frac{3π3^2}{4}\) = \(\frac{27π}{4}\)

So, Area of the total figure is \(36\) + \(\frac{27π}{4}\), answer will be (C)

As the length of both QT and TR are equal. So we can deduce that the length of the side of the Square is 6 and radius of the circle is 3. From this we can find the areas of the square and the Circle and add both.

Side of Square = QT+TR =3+3 =6
radius = 3
Area Square = 6*6 =36
Area of 3/4 Circle = 3/4 * pie *3*3= pi*27/4
Total area 36+ pi*27/4, Answer = C

We can consider the shaded region as the total area of a square and ¾ the area of a circle.

Since TR = 3, the radius of the circle is 3 and the side of the square is 6.

Thus:

Area of the square is 6 x 6 = 36.

3/4 of the area of the circle is 3/4 x π x 3^2 = 27π/4.

So, the area of the shaded region is 36 + 27π/4.

Answer: C
