However I got about 1179 and the correct answer rounds to 1176. Did I make a mistake or did I do it wrong. I said 300*pi because 3/4 sector of a 20 foot radius circle, 169*pi/4 because of two quarter sectors of 13 radius circles, and -1/4*36*pi, because the two radius thirteen circles overlap each other by 6 foot radii in a 90 degree circular arc.
