Here are a couple of videos about this problem. The first goes over a shortcut method to solve the question in a few seconds. The second goes over a more conventional, but more versatile, approach.

Area of the semicircle = \(\frac{\pi r^2}{2}\) Since Radius is 2 therefore Area of the semicircle =>\(\frac{\pi*2*2}{2}\)===> \(2\pi\) Area of the rectangle=\(l . b = 8 x 4 = 32\)

total area = \(32 + 2\pi\) Answer is E

I see this differently. If this was purely a rectangle, then the area would be 40sq.f

So A and B are automatically wrong. Say I don't remember my geometry and only know that pi is 3.14, then everything is easy. C=32+8*3.14=too much D=32+4*3.14=too much

So by elimination the answer is E

Did it the same way.

Half-circle --> 2/pi, we can narrow down the choices to two. If it would be a full rectangle --> 4 * 10 = 40. But it is not a full rectangle. --> Must be E.

We are given a semicircle with a diameter of 4 ft., which also represents the width of the rectangle. We are also given that height of the window is 10 ft., which is the combined length of the radius of the semicircle and the length of the rectangle. To determine the length of the rectangle, we can subtract the radius of the semicircle, which is 2 ft., from the total length of 10 ft.:

10 - 2 = 8 ft.

Now we can calculate the area of the semicircle and the rectangle.
