Points $X$, $Y$, and $Z$ are on the sides $\overline{QR}$, $\overline{PR}$, and $\overline{PQ}$, respectively, of right triangle $PQR$ such that $PZXY$ is a square. If $PQ = 1$ and $PR = 1$, then what is the side length of the square?

Side length of the square  =   [ product of the legs  / [ sum of the legs ] =  (1*1) / ( 1 + 1)  = 1/2
