# What is the length of a side of a JKLM rhombus?

4 units, 8 units, 12 units, 16 units

**Solution:**

Given, JKLM is a rhombus

The length of the side JK is 2x + 4

The length of the side JM is 3x.

Some of the important properties of the rhombus are:

- All sides of the rhombus are equal.
- The opposite sides of a rhombus are parallel.
- The opposite angles of a rhombus are equal.
- In a rhombus, diagonals bisect each other at right angles.
- Diagonals bisect the angles of a rhombus.

We know, all sides of a rhombus are equal.

So, 3x = 2x + 4

3x - 2x = 4

x = 4

The length of the side JK = 2(4) + 4 = 8 + 4 = 12 units

The length of the side JM = 3(4) = 12 units

I.e. length of JK = length of JM

Therefore, the length of the side of the rhombus JKLM is 12 units.

## What is the length of a side of a JKLM rhombus?

**Summary:**

The length of a side of a JKLM rhombus is 12 units.
