The Length Of A Side Of A Rhombus Is 5cm.one of the diagonals is 6cm long.what is the area of the rhombus in cmsquare

Side of rhombus makes hypotenuse of right angle triangle and half of diagonal makes one of the remaining two sides of that triangle. So, h=5 and b=3 Now, p =h^2-b^2 = 25-9=16 Or, p = 4 Hence, another diagonal of rhombus = 8 cm. Area of Rhombus = 1/2 (d_1 x d_2) = (1/2)x 6 x 8 = 24 sq cm
