This is an interesting problem I don't quite get. I am sure that it does not require precal to solve it. I would appreciate help. Hint: Each curve is made as if making a quarter of a circle in side the square. Each pair of curves meet at the vertex of the square to make a "pointy" oval. Find the area of the shaded region. Figure isn't drawn to scale. The problem can be viewed at this URL: http://docs.google.com/View?docid=dgv8qqxh_12dzrgpjd9 Thank you very much.
