# The area of a rhombus is 84 m^{2}. If its perimeter is 40 m, then find its altitude.

Answer :

**Given:** Area of rhombus = 84 m^{2}

Perimeter = 40 m

**To find:** The length of altitude

**Formula Used:**

Perimeter of rhombus = 4 × side

Area of parallelogram = base × height

**Explanation:**

As Perimeter of rhombus = 4 × side

Side of rhombus

Rhombus is a type of parallelogram,

Hence area of rhombus = area of parallelogram

⇒ Base× altitude = area of parallelogram

10 × altitude = 84

Altitude of rhombus = 8.4 m
