Problem 4
Quadrilateral is a rhombus with perimeter meters. The length of diagonal is meters. What is the area in square meters of rhombus ?
Solution 1
Because it is a rhombus all sides are equal. Implies all sides are 13. In a rhombus diagonals are perpendicular and bisect each other. Which means = = .
Consider one of the right triangles.
= . = . Which means = .
Thus the values of the two diagonals are = and = . Which means area = = =
