Area of 1 semicircle =$$\frac{π r^2}{2}$$ = 8π , 3 semicircles so total area of 3 semicircles = 3 x 8π = 24π

Also since diameter are same we would get a square figure at the centre (sides equal and perpendicular) , so are one bigger triangle = $$\frac{8*8}{2}$$= 32 , now smaller triangle is half of this area so smaller traingle = 16, likewise we have 3 smaller triangle so area = 48

total area 24π + 48
