Two squares in a circle (Posted on 2014-12-05) Difficulty: 3 of 5

I drew a square of side 5 together with its circumcircle. At the middle of the arc between a side and the circle, I drew a smaller square with two vertices on the side, and the other two on the circle.

What was the area of the smaller square?

A small typo:
."..where the smaller circle ..."  s.b.  "..where the smaller square..".
