We know that the area of the half-circle divided by the area of the whole square multiplied by 100 gives us the percentage that the half-circles occupies in the square. Then, 100% minus the percentage found gives us the percentage of the rest of the square, which is the probability we're looking for. But I've tried to find a concrete percentage but I couldn't, I'm a bit rusty tonight and it's getting late :p Tell me if you get anything new...

Those are the calculations for what I've stated above:

$\displaystyle \frac {2\pi r^2}{8r^2 - \pi r^2}$ x 100

$\displaystyle \frac {2\pi r^2}{r^2(8-\pi)}$ x 100

$\displaystyle \frac {2\pi}{(8-\pi)}$ x 100

$\displaystyle \frac {200\pi}{(8-\pi)}$% = The percentage that the half-square occupies

100% - $\displaystyle \frac {200\pi}{(8-\pi)}$%= The probability we're looking for...

$\displaystyle \frac {200\pi}{(8-\pi)} \approx $ 129%

100% - 129% = -29%
