small circle area = pi * 4 and large circle area = pi * 9
shaded region = (9-4) * pi
fraction of the larger semicircle does the shaded region represent
5 * pi/ pi * 9 = 5/9 IMO d

Area of semi-circle pi/2 * r^2

diameter AB = 4 and diameter AC = 6
r(AB) = 2 and r(AC) = 3

Shaded region = pi/2 * [ r(AC)^2 - r(AB)^2)] = pi/2 *5 -------(1)
Area of larger semicircle = pi/2 * 9-------(2)

what fraction of the larger semicircle does the shaded region represent = (1)/(2)
=> 5/9

Answer D

Area of larger semicircle= (pi/2)* (AC/2)^2=0.5pi*3^2= 4.5pi
Area of smaller semicircle= (pi/2)* (AB/2)^2=0.5pi*2^2= 2pi

Area of shaded portion= Area of larger semicircle-area of smaller semicircle= 4.5pi-2pi=2.5pi

Thus, ratio = 2.5pi/4.5pi=5/9
