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 m2

Area of square = side2


Side of a square =


Side of square =
