d= 30 \(cm^2\)
r= 15 \(cm^2\)
let a be the area of one piece of the shaded design. Since the sections are of equal size, 12 a= area of the circle
We need to find 6a
2(6a) = π \(15^2\)
6a = 112.5π \(cm^2\)

--B--

We see the circle is broken up into 12 equal parts; 6 are shaded and 6 are not. Thus, the shaded region is 1/2 the area of the entire circle.

Since the area of the entire circle is 15^2 x π = 225π, the area of shaded region is:

1/12 x 225π = 112.5π

Answer: B
