# The diagonals of a rhombus are 6cm and 8cm. The area of the rhombus is

**Solution:**

It is given that

One diagonal of a rhombus = 6 cm

Second diagonal of a rhombus = 8 cm

The formula used to find the area of a rhombus is

A = (Diagonal 1 × Diagonal 2)/ 2

Substituting the values

A = (6 × 8)/ 2

A = 48/2

A = 24 cm^{2}

Therefore, the area of a rhombus is 24 cm^{2}.

## The diagonals of a rhombus are 6cm and 8cm. The area of the rhombus is

**Summary:**

The diagonals of a rhombus are 6cm and 8cm. The area of the rhombus is 24 cm^{2}.
