Expert Answer:

Four circles can't touch each other, but each circle can touch two others.

When  two circles of radius a touch each other, the line joining their centers is of length 2a.

So, we will have a square of side 2a where the vertices of the square are actually the centres of these circles.

So,the required area

= Area of the square - 4(area of the  sector of one corcle of radius a and central angle 90)
