# A field in the form of a rhombus has each side of length 64 m and altitude 16 m. What is the side of a square field which has the same area as that of a rhombus?

Answer :

Side of rhombus = 30 m

Altitude of rhombus = 16 m

Rhombus is a type of parallelogram

Area of parallelogram = base × altitude

Area of parallelogram = 64 × 16 = 1024 m^{2}

Since area of rhombus = area of square

Area of square = side^{2}

Side of a square =

Side of square =

Therefore side of square = 32 m
