When you draw three circles of radius r such that all three are externally tangent, what is the area of the shape in the center in terms of r?

Not every official solution is posted. For one thing, users below
apprentice rank cannot post their own solutions. In order for
their solutions to be posted, a scholar needs to check over it and push
it. Unfortunately, due to the very long (and intimidating) list
of problems without posted official solutions, very few official
solutions are even looked at.
Besides the above problem, many people have not written official
solutions. It takes longer than you would think to write a
solution, especially if you want to write a well-explained and vigorous
solution worthy of the title of "official". Furthermore, many
people who have written solutions do not feel confident in pushing them
without someone looking over them. Again, very few solutions
actually get reviewed by scholars and journeymen.
You could request that a scholar push the solution to this
problem. In a way, you already did. A scholar might chance
upon your comment and decide to push the solution.
