Area of shaded region= Area of circle - area of ABCD + 1/2*(Area of EFGH)+ ( 1/2*(Area of IJKL)

Radius of circle= 1/2* AC= $$\frac{x}{\sqrt{2}}$$

Area of circle= $$Π*\frac{x^2}{2}$$

Area of ABCD= x^2

Diagonal of EFGH= Side of ABCD= x

EF= $$\frac{x}{\sqrt{2}}$$

Area of EFGH= $$\frac{x^2}{2}$$

Similarly we can get

IJ= $$\frac{x}{2\sqrt{2}}$$

Area of IJKL= $$\frac{x^2}{8}$$

Area of shaded region= $$Π*\frac{x^2}{2}$$$$- x^2+ \frac{x^2}{4} + \frac{x^2}{16}$$

= $$\frac{x^2}{2}[ Π - 2 +\frac{1}{2}+ \frac{1}{8}]$$

= $$\frac{x^2}{16} [ 8Π-11]$$
