In a square, the midpoints of its sides were marked and some segments were drawn. There is another square formed in the centre. Find its area, if the side of the square has length \(10\).

In a parallelogram \(ABCD\), point \(E\) belongs to the side \(AB\), point \(F\) belongs to the side \(CD\) and point \(G\) belongs to the side \(AD\). What is more, the marked red segments \(AE\) and \(CF\) have equal lengths. Prove that the total grey area is equal to the total black area.
