    Too easy..eh?

    C1, C2 and C3 are three tangent circles with their centers on the same line. If R is the radius of the large circle and the diameter of circle C1 is twice the diameter of circle C3, then what is the area of the shaded region?

    I guess it would be easy for someone who has a double doctorate at M.I.T.
