## Online Tutoring Is The Easiest, Most Cost-Effective Way For Students To Get The Help They Need Whenever They Need It.

Rhombus is the geometric figure with four sides and the length of all its sides are equal. Rhombus is also called as diamond shaped because of its geometric shape. The opposite sides of the rhombus are parallel. The area of the rhombus formula = a * h. Here 'a' is the length of a side and 'h' is the height, which is the perpendicular distance between any two parallel sides.

Example 1: What is the area of the rhombus which has length of a side 6 cm and height 4 cm?

Given are length of the side and height of the rhombus.

The area of the rhombus is = length of the side * height.

The length of the side = 6 cm and height = 4 cm
This makes the solution = 6 * 4 square cm = 24 cm2.
Therefore, area of the rhombus with length of the side 6 cm and height 4 cm is equal to 24 cm2.

Hence area = 24 square cm2.

Example 2: what is the area of the rhombus which has length of a side 2 cm and height 5 cm?

Given are length of the side and height of the rhombus.

The area of the rhombus is = length of the side * height.

The length of the side = 2 cm and height = 5 cm
This makes the solution = 2 * 5 square cm = 10 cm2.
Therefore, area of the rhombus with length of the side 2 cm and height 5 cm is equal to 10 cm2.

Hence area = 10 cm2.
