**Area of Rhombus**

The rhombus is a quadrilateral whose all sides are equal, and diagonals intersect each other at 90 degrees. Rhombus is a diamond shape quadrilateral. Some also call the rhombus a special kind of parallelogram.

In mathematics, there are a lot of questions regarding a rhombus.

## Rhombus formula

When both diagonals are given |
A = ½ × d |

When base and height are given |
A = b × h |

When angle is given |
A = b |

## Finding area of a Rhombus:

If “b” is its sides and “θ” is an included angle, the formula is: **Area of a Rhombus = b2 sin θ square units**.

**Example:** The length of a side of a rhombus is 9cm, and the included angle is 30 degrees. Then the area should be **92 sin 30 square units**. The area is 40.5 square units.

There are other ways to find the area of a rhombus too.

One of the ways is by using the formula D1 x D2/2. D1 and D2 are the values of the diagonal.

**Example:** The length of Diagonal 1 is 6cm, and the length of Diagonal 2 is 8cm. Putting it into the formula should give us 6 x 8/2, which are 24 units squared.
