Question

Find the area of a rhombus whose perimeter is 80 m and one of whose diagonal is 24 m.

Solution

Given that,
Perimeter of rhombus = 80m
Perimeter of rhombus = 4 × side

⇒ 4a = 80
⇒ a = 20m
Let AC = 24 m

∴ OA =`1/2AC=1/2xx24=12m`

In ΔAOB

`OB^2=AB^2-OA^2`

`⇒OB=sqrt(20^2-12^2)`

`sqrt(400-144)`

`sqrt(256)=16m`

Also BO = OD 

   [Diagonal of rhombus bisect each other at 90°]

∴ BD = 20B = 2 ×16 = 32 m

∴Area of rhombus = `1/2`×32×24=`384𝑚^2`

[∵Area of rhombus = 12×𝐵𝐷×𝐴𝐶]

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
