The two smaller semicircles have radius 4.5cm. They can be combined to form 1 circle. Same for the two larger semicircles, which have a radius of 6cm.

Combined area of the two smaller semicircles
= 3.14 x 4.5cm x 4.5cm
= 63.585cm²

Combined area of the two larger semicircles
= 3.14 x 6cm x 6cm
= 113.04cm²

Area of rectangle
= 9cm x 12cm
= 108cm²

Notice the large unshaded circle in the middle. See the 15cm line? That's its diameter. So its radius is 7.5cm.

Area of large unshaded circle
= 3.14 x 7.5cm x 7.5cm
= 176.625cm²

Shaded area
= Area of all 4 semicircles + area of rectangle - area of large unshaded circle

= 63.585cm² + 113.04cm² + 108cm² - 176.625cm²

= 108cm²

Final answer is incorrect. Your approach to solving is correct but you've mistaken the diameter of the big unshaded circle to be 12cm instead of 15cm.

Also, there is a calculation error in your second last step. It should be 176.625cm² instead of 149.625cm².

Notice that the 15cm line cuts across the centre of the large unshaded circle. So the diameter is 15cm and therefore radius is 7.5cm

Tip :

Two semicircles of the same size can be combined into a single circle. So in your working, you can just write

½ x 3.14 x 6 x 6 x 2


3.14 x 6 x 6

in a single step instead of dividing by ½ to find one semicircle and then multiplying by 2 again
