# The figure formed

Given: A rectangle with sides 8cm and 6cm.

Consider the Rectangle ABCD

Here DR = RD = AP = PB = 8/2 = 4cm ( P and R are the midpoints of DC and AB respectively)

and AS = SD = BQ = QC = 6/2 = 3cm( S and Q are the midpoints of AD and BC respectively)

Now, consider the ΔRSD

By Pythagoras theorem

SR2 = SD2 + DR2

SR2 = 32 + 42

SR2 = 9 + 16

SR2 = 25

SR = 5 cm

Similarly using Pythagoras theorem in ΔQRC , ΔPBQ and ΔAPS

We get RQ = QP = PS = 5cm

SR = RQ = QP = PS = 5cm

PQSR is Rhombus of side length 5cm

Area of the rhombus is given by:

Area of the rhombus = = = 24cm2

Area(PQRS) = 24cm2
