Some solved problems on the area of the kite are given below:

Solved Examples

Question 1: Find the area of kite whose diagonals are 7 cm and 4 cm ?
Solution:
 
Given,
d1 = 7 cm
d2 = 4 cm

Area of a kite
= $\frac{1}{2}$d1d2

= $\frac{7 \times 4}{2}$ cm2

= $\frac{28}{2}$ cm2

= 14 cm2
 

Question 2: Find the area of a kite whose diagonals are 21 cm and 12 cm ?
Solution:
 
Given,
d1 = 21 cm
d2 = 12 cm

Area of a kite
= $\frac{1}{2}$d1d2

= $\frac{21 \times 12}{2}$ cm2

= $\frac{252}{2}$ cm2

= 126 cm2
