Construct the following quadrilaterals.
BE = 4.5 cm
ET = 6 cm
We know that all sides of a rhombus are of the same measure.
Hence, BE = ES = ST = TB
A rough sketch of this rhombus can be drawn as follows.
1) Δ BET can be constructed by using the given measurements as follows.
2) Vertex S is 4.5 cm away from vertex E and also from vertex T. Therefore, while taking E and T as centres, draw arcs of 4.5 cm radius, which will be intersecting each other at point S.
3) Join S to E and T.
BEST is the required rhombus.
