Let me describe the solution in polar coordinates.

Assume that the circle is centered at (0,0) and has radius =2. Thus the area is 4 PI.

The first part is bounded by a circle, also centered at (0,0) with radius =1 and area = PI.

Now, draw the line segment from (r=1, Theta=0 degrees) to (r=2, Theta = 30 degrees)

Also draw the line segment (r=1, Theta=120 degrees) to (r=2,Theta=150 degrees)

And the segment (r=1, Theta=240 degrees) to (r=2, Theta=270 degrees)
