## Definition of Rhombus

Rhombus is a parallelogram with four equal sides.

• Diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at right angles.
• Diagonals of a rhombus bisect opposite angles.
• Area of a rhombus (A) with side length l and perpendicular distance h between opposite sides is given as A = lh

### Example of Rhombus

The given figure represents a rhombus.

### Solved Example on Rhombus

A. 9 in.2
B. 6 in.2
C. 7 in.2
D. 8 in.2

#### Solution:

Step 1: Area of rhombus = 1/2 × product of diagonals
Step 2: AC = 3 in. and BD = 4 in. [Given.]
Step 3: Area of ABCD = 1/2 × AC × BD
Step 4: = 1/2 × 3 × 4
Step 5: = 12 / 2 = 6 [Substitute AC = 3 and BD = 4.]
Step 6: The area of ABCD = 6 in.2.
