What is the area of the rhombus ABCD below if AC = 6cm, and BE = 4cm?


A. 36cm2

B. 16cm2

C. 24cm2

D. 13cm2

Answer :

The diagonal AC of the rhombus ABCD divides it into two triangles of equal areas.


Now, area of Δ ABC = × base × height = × 4 × 6 = 12cm2


Area of the rhombus ABCD = 2 × area of Δ ABC


= 2 × 12 = 24cm2
