I'm having a hard time creating this shape. Could anyone guide me as to what shapes I could use to create the shapes within the circle.


Thanks so much!

I started with creating 3 circles, with diameters 99, 66 and 33.

Use the Ellipse Tool (L) and Alt+Click in the center to create the next shapes aligned. Then in the popup you fill out the size.

3 circled

Now I added a line across the center and Right Click → Transform → Move > 16.5 pt (vertical) and selected copy (did this twice)

lines 1

Now did the same thing with a vertical line transformed horizontally.

lines 2

Now using the Shapebuilder Tool (Shift+M) merge the shapes together, and hold down Alt to remove the edges at the end.

Now add some color:
