The moment of inertia is expressed as:

$\overline{){\mathbf{I}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbit{M}}{{\mathbit{R}}}^{{\mathbf{2}}}}$, where M is the mass of the object and R is the perpendicular distance.

Part A.

The moment of inertia, mr2 = m(3r)2 = m9r2.

The moment of inertia depends on the axis of rotation.
