Geometry Circle problem

This is an interesting problem I don't quite get. I am sure that it does not require pre-cal 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:

Thank you very much.
