interesting square

Draw a square. From each vertex construct an arc with the radius of the square through the vertices adjacent to the chosen vertex. You should have 4 arcs intersecting inside the square that form a kind of realuex square ( I think that is close to the spelling). Connect the consecutive vertices where the arcs intersect. What is the ratio of the area of this new square to the area of the original square.
