It would be about 60, correct?

The answer is: 50.2 ft² . ___________________________________________ Explanation: ___________________________________________ The answer would be the area of the rectangle: 12 ft * 5 ft = 60 ft² ; MINUS {"1/2" of the area of the circle). ________________________________ The area of the circle, "A": A = π r² . π ≈ 3.14 ; "r", the radius, is 1/2 the diameter of the circle. The diameter of the circle is: 5 ft. r = (1/2) * (5 ft) = (2.5 ft). A = π r² = (3.14) * (2.5 ft)² = (3.14) * (2.5 ft) * (2.5 ft) = 19.625 ft² = 19 5/8 ft² . 1/2 the area of the circle; which is the shaded region; is: ______________________________________ (19.625 ft²) / 2 = 9.8125 ft² = 9 11/16 ft². _______________________________________ The area of the unshaded region is: 60 ft² − 9.8125 ft² = 50.1875 ft² ; → round to the nearest tenth → 50.2 ft² . ____________________________________________________________
