Area of a Kite Formula

Area of a Kite is the amount of space occupied by the kite. A kite is similar to the rhombus except that the adjacent sides in a kite are equal. The diagonals of the kite are perpendicular to each other and the area of the kite is half the product of the diagonals.

### Solved Examples

**Question 1: **Find the area of kite whose diagonals are 7 cm and 4 cm ?

** Solution: **

Given,

d_{1} = 7 cm

d_{2} = 4 cm

Area of a kite

= $\frac{1}{2}$d_{1}d_{2}

= $\frac{7 \times 4}{2}$ cm^{2}

= $\frac{28}{2}$ cm^{2}

= 14 cm^{2}

**Question 2: **Find the area of a kite whose diagonals are 21 cm and 12 cm ?

** Solution: **

Given,

d_{1} = 21 cm

d_{2} = 12 cm

Area of a kite

= $\frac{1}{2}$d_{1}d_{2}

= $\frac{21 \times 12}{2}$ cm^{2}

= $\frac{252}{2}$ cm^{2}

= 126 cm^{2}
