Problem 2459. grazing cows

Created by rifat ahmed

Here is a fun problem I encountered in high school.

Two cows are grazing in an enclosed square-shaped field of side length s meters. They are both tied by two ropes to the two adjacent corners of the field. Due to the ropes, they both will be able to graze only on a fraction of the field. Determine the the area of the field grazed by these two cows. Result should be rounded on 4 decimal points.
