#### Question

Draw the following:

A rhombus whose diagonals are 5.2 cm and 6.4 cm long.

#### Solution

In a rhombus, diagonals bisect each other at 90º. Therefore, the given rhombus ABCD can be drawn as follows.

1) A rough sketch of this rhombus ABCD is as follows. 2) Draw a line segment AC of 5.2 cm and draw its perpendicular bisector. Let it intersect the line segment AC at point O. 3) Draw arcs of "6.4 cm"/2 = 3.2 cm on both sides of this perpendicular bisector. Let the arcs intersect the perpendicular bisector at point B and D. 4) Join points B and D with points A and C. ABCD is the required rhombus.
