Area of a Rhombus is the amount of space occupied by the rhombus. A rhombus has 4 sides and the opposite sides of the rhombus are equal. A rhombus is also called as an **equilateral quadrilateral**. A rhombus with internal angles as 90^{o} is a square. The area of the rhombus is half the product of the diagonals.

### Solved Examples

**Question 1: **Find the area of a rhombus whose diameters are of length 7 cm and 5 cm ?

** Solution: **

Given,

d_{1} = 7 cm

d_{2} = 5 cm

Area of a rhombus

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

= $\frac{1}{2}$ * 7 * 5 cm^{2}

= $\frac{35}{2}$ cm^{2}

= 17.5 cm^{2}

**Question 2: **Find the area of a rhombus whose diameters are of length 21 cm and 13 cm ?

** Solution: **

Given,

d_{1} = 21 cm

d_{2} = 13 cm

Area of a rhombus

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

= $\frac{1}{2}$ * 21 * 13 cm^{2}

= $\frac{273}{2}$ cm^{2}

= 136.5 cm^{2}
