Answer: 4.

Pre-RMO, 2019

Geometry Revisited by Coxeter .

A figure is taken such that side of triangle is x and sides of octagon are $x\sqrt 2$ and $5-2x$

Here $5-2x$=$x\sqrt 2$ then x=$\frac{5}{2+\sqrt 2}$

Area removed =2x^2=$\frac{2(25)}{2(1+2^\frac{1}{2})}$ which is nearly 4.3 then the nearest integer is 4
