So, in the imagine you have a 10x10 square (EFGH), and E,F,G & H are the centers of their respective circumferences. So, what is the area of ABCD? In meters2

TopNewestIt is easy by construction sir , by extending the vertices to join points ABCD to form equilateral triangles and by that all the areas we wanted . as such subtracting area of 60° sector from triangle would give symmetrical parts area . now just calculate the length of the square formed inside the bigger square.

Are you calculating the green area?

This would make for an excellent problem in the Geometry or Calculus section.

The most elementary way (in my opinion) of viewing it is the following:

\[ A = \int_{-5}^5 \int_{-5}^5 \, M(x,y) \, dx \, dy \\ M(x,y) = 1 \, \text{if} \, (x,y) \, \text{inside all four circles} \\ M(x,y) = 0 \, \text{otherwise} \]

There is a simple way to explain what you did? A that a 13 year old can understand...

Divide the big square into many tiny squares (arranged like a grid). Add up the areas of all of the tiny squares that happen to fall inside all four circles simultaneously. This is difficult to do by hand (I think), but easy to do with a computer.
