**Problem 11:** Find the area of the semicircle below with a diameter of [latex]8[/latex] centimeters. Use [latex]\pi = 3.1416[/latex].

## Answer

The area of a semicircle is **half** of the area of a circle.

[latex]27.33[/latex] square centimeters

**Problem 12:** Both circles share the same center. Find the **exact** area of the shaded region.

## Answer

Area of the **shaded region** = area of the larger circle **minus **area of the smaller (inner) circle

[latex]21\pi [/latex] square inches
