A rhombus is a parallelogram with all sides equal

 

To find area of rhombus,

We draw its diagonals

So,

Area of Rhombus ABCD

  = 1/2 × d 1 × d 2

Find area of rhombus ABCD

Given Diagonals,

     d 1 = 10 cm

  & d 2 = 8 cm

 

Now,

  Area of rhombus = 1/2 × d 1 × d 2

      = 1/2 × 10 × 8

      = 10 × 4

      = 40 cm 2
