# 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 cm^{2}

Area of parallelogram = area of rhombus

Area of rhombus =

24 =

d₂ =

Hence, length of other diagonal of rhombus is 6 cm
