Find the area of a rhombus whose side is 6 cm and whose altitude is 4 cm. If one of its diagonals is 8 cm long, find the length of the other diagonal.

Answer :

Side of rhombus = 6 cm


Altitude of rhombus = 4 cm


Since rhombus is a parallelogram, thereore area of parallelogram = base× altitude


Area of parallelogram = 6 × 4 = 24 cm2


Area of parallelogram = area of rhombus


Area of rhombus =


24 =


d₂ =


Hence, length of other diagonal of rhombus is 6 cm
