Will someone help me?

The squares area is 12 by 12 and or 144. The circles area is 354.94. I know this because $\pi {r}^{2}$ or 3.14 times the radius of the circle (6) square. I know that in order to find the area of the shaded region I need to subtract 354.94 from 144. But if I do that it would be negative? But how can the shaded area be negative??? I need help

$\text{Shaded area} \approx 30.90$
1. $\pi {r}^{2}$ for $r = 6$ is $36 \pi \approx 113.10$
2. You do $\text{Area of square"-"Area of circle} = 144 - 36 \pi$
$144 - 36 \pi \approx 30.9$
