It will give you an idea of the picture involved, as well as the area enclosed by the inner loop.
Using that information, we have that:
the inner loop encloses area `9 pi - (27 sqrt(3))/2`
and the inner loop corresponds to `theta` from `7/6 pi` to `11/6 pi`
The outer loop consists of `theta` from 0 to `7/6 pi` and from `11/6 pi` to `2 pi`
It is easier, though, to think of the segment from `11/6 pi` to `2pi` as` `
`-1/6 pi` to 0
Thus, the outer loop corresponds to `theta` from `-1/6 pi` to `7/6 pi`
The formula we want is:
`A=int_(-1/6 pi)^(7/6 pi) 1/2 r^2 d theta`
Thus:
`A=int_(-1/6 pi)^(7/6 pi) 1/2 (3+6 sin(theta))^2 d theta`
(The same steps will follow as in the answer in the link)
`A=9/2 int_(-1/6 pi)^(7/6 pi) (1+2 sin(theta)^2 d theta=`
`9/2 int_(-1/6 pi)^(7/6 pi) 1+4 sin(theta) + 4 sin^2(theta) d theta`
`int 1 + 4 sin(theta)+4 sin^2(theta) d theta = `
`theta-4 cos(theta)+4 int sin^2 theta d theta=`
`theta-4 cos theta+4 int (1-cos(2 theta))/2 d theta=`
`theta-4 cos theta+int 2 - 2 cos(2 theta) d theta=`
` ` `theta-4 cos theta+2 theta-sin(2 theta)=`
`3 theta-4 cos theta - sin(2 theta)`
Evaluating at `7/6 pi` and at `-1/6 pi` we have:
at `7/6 pi` :
`7/2 pi +(3 sqrt(3))/2`
at `-1/6 pi` :
`-pi/2-(3 sqrt(3))/2`
Thus, the area enclosed by the outer loop is:
`9/2 (4 pi+3 sqrt(3))=36 pi+(27 sqrt(3))/2`
Taking the area enclosed by the outer loop minus the area enclosed by the inner loop is:
`27 pi+27sqrt(3)`
