The segment passes through . Therefore, (36r)^2 = (36+r)^2 + 36^2  2*36*(36+r)*sin(pi/4) PS: Is there problem with latex?

That would be true if the circle touched side DE of a square, but since it doesn't touch it, then points O_2 and B don't lie on DO_1. The circle touches the arc DO_1 in point C not the side of a square. Notice that I also thought that and posted a solution but it's WRONG.

The small circle's radius is exactly 6.

The small radius is the side of the square or the big radius divided by 6. r=R/6. So in this case is r=6 Do you need any proof?
