A rectangle is cut from a unit square, and placed inside the remaining rectangle at an angle so that its 4 vertices touch the 4 sides of that rectangle.

 

What are the dimensions of the rectangle?

The closest I could get is:

Square side:  a = 3

Rectangle sides:   a = .8   and  b = 3

Therefore, the area of a rectangle is  2.4 units2

If the angles are 30° , 60° and 90° , it should work with any size of a square.
