**NEW Q:**. Small squares of side x cm have been removed from the corners, sides and centre of a square of side y cm to form the gasket shown.

If x and y are prime numbers and the sum of the inside and outside perimeters of the gasket, in centimetres, is equal to the area of the gasket, in square centimetres, what is the smallest possible value of the area of the gasket?
