Also, I have assumed the similar triangles are isosceles, i don’t know if i can assume this, and i think this means the solution will be dependent on the angles in the similar triangles. Reply

3/4-(1-1/sqrt(2))^2 = 1/4+sqrt(2)*(1-1/sqrt(2)) ≈ 0.6642

sqrt(2)-3/4

I agree with Alex. Root 2 -3/4

I got rt2 -3/4 as well. It doesn’t feel like a satisfying answer.

I got that the shaded area is 11/20 of the large square’s area.
