Rhombus is a parallelogram where

all sides are equal

i.e. AB = BC = CD = AD


In parallelogram

  • Opposite sides are equal
  • Opposite angles are equal
  • Diagonals bisect each other
  • Sum of adjacent angles is 180°


Properties of Rhombus:

Since it is a parallelogram,

it will have all its properties



Other properties are

Diagonals bisect each other at right angles

  AO = CO and BO = DO


  ∠ AOB = 90°

  ∠ BOC = 90°

  ∠ COD = 90°

  ∠ AOD = 90°
