The geometric shape called a rhombus is a quadrilateral with 4 side lengths that are equal. The opposite sides of a rhombus and the opposite angles of a rhombus are equal. The diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular bisectors of each other (they intersect in the middle of each line at right angles).Β

To find the area of the rhombus we multiply the lengths of the diagonals and divide by 2. The area formula for a rhombus is therefore βdiagonal 1 x diagonal 2, divided by 2β. Remember that area is measured in square units, e.g. mm2, cm2 or m2.

Looking forward, students can then progress to additionalΒ area worksheetsΒ and otherΒ geometry worksheets, for example anΒ angles in polygons worksheetΒ orΒ area andΒ circumference of a circle worksheet.

For more teaching and learning support on Geometry our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.
