The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at right angles.


Let the intersecting point be O.


So, we get right angled triangles.


We know that the Pythagoras Theorem states that in a right triangle, the square of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.


Let us consider ΔAOB.


By Pythagoras Theorem,


AB2 = AO2 + OB2


AB2 = 212 + 202


AB2 = 441 + 400


AB2 = 841


AB = 29cm


The length of each side of the rhombus is 29cm.
