Circumference of larger circle = 2πR = 10π

i.e. Radius, R = 5

i.e. Radius of smaller circle = 5/2

Area of shaded region = Bigger circle - smaller circle = π(5^2 - 2.5^2) = 18.75π

Answer: option C

\(2πR = 10π\) {R = RAdius of the Bigger Circle }

So, \(R = 5\)

Now, \(r = \frac{5}{2} = 2.5\) { r = Radius of the smaller circle }

So, The Difference of the Area is \(π ( R^2 - r^2) = π ( R + r ) ( R - r )\)

Or, The required area is \(π * 7.5 * 2.5 = 18.75π\) , Answer must be (C)

Circumference of the larger circle = 2πr

2πr = 10
πr = 10/2
r = 5

Area of the larger circle = πr^2
= 5^2 x π
= 25π

Area of the smaller circle = πr^2
= 2.5^2 x π
= 6.25π

Area of the shaded region = 25π - 6.25π
= 18.75π

Hence in my opinion C

Since the circumference of the larger circle is 10π, the diameter is 10, and the radius is 5.

Thus, the diameter of the smaller circle is 5, and its radius is 2.5.

So, the area of the larger circle is 5^2 x π = 25π and the area of the smaller circle is 2.5^2 x π = 6.25π.

Therefore, the area of the shaded region is 25π - 6.25π = 18.75π.

Answer: C
