    For 1, the area of each of the hemispheres on the side is \frac{1}{2}\pi r^2. Therefore, the area of both of them combined is \pi r^2.
    To find the area of the shaded regions, subtract \pi r^2 from the area of the rectangle, which is 8r \times 2r = 16r^2.
    Shaded region = 16r^2 - \pi r^2 = r^2(16-\pi).

    For 2, subtract the area of the smaller square from the area of the bigger.
    Shaded region = (6a)^2 - (3b)^2 = 36a^2 - 9b^2 = 9(4a^2 - b^2).
