Q. 134.8( 18 Votes )

The diagonal of a quadrilateral shaped field is 24 m and the perpendiculars dropped on it from the remaining opposite vertices are 8 m and 13 m. Find the area of the field.

Answer :

Given: diagonal = 24 m


p1 = 8 m


p2 = 13 m


To find: Area of field


Formula Used: Area of rhombus = 1/2 × d × (p1 + p2)


Explanation:



Area of quadrilateral =


Area of rhombus =


Area of rhombus =


Hence, area of quadrilateral is 252 cm2
