How do I solve this?

On my assignment it says find the area

inside the square, but outside the circle, given that the radius of the

circle is 2 ft. Use 3.14 for ^

I have a picture of a square with a circle in the square, with a base 6 ft. and height 6 ft.

Here are the choices for me to mark

my answer and I can't even solve it.

A. 23.44 ft^

B. 29.72 ft^

C. 32 ft^

D. 32.86 ft.^ (The symbol ^ means 2)

Thank you for your help!

Have a blessed day!!

i think its A

find the area of the circle (pi)(r^2)

then the area of the square (6)(6)

circle area = 12.56

square area = 36

36 - 12.56 = 23.44
