Just like in Part 1
, \(ABCD\) is a square with a side length of 18, and we divide each side into three equal parts and mark the points \(E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L\) in a clockwise manner starting from the vertex \(D\). This time, we connect each of those points to the nearest
vertex that is opposite to them to form a not-necessarily-regular octagon as shown in the figure above, for example, points \(A\) and \(E\) will be connected in this case. What is the area of this octagon?
