If each side of a rhombus is doubled, how much will its area increase?
A. 1.5 times

B. 2 times

C. 3 times

D. 4 times

Answer :

Let b be the side and h be the height of a rhombus.
Area of rhombus = b × h

[ area of rhombus = base × corresponding height]

If each side of rhombus is doubled, then side of rhombus = 2b
Now, area of rhombus = 2b × h = 2(b × h)

= 2 times of original

Hence, the area of rhombus will be increased by 2 times.
