# Rhombus Area Calculator

Posted by Dinesh onUse this simple geometry calculator tool to calculate area of a rhombus. Rhombus is a special type of parallelogram, all properties of parallelograms apply to rhombi. If a triangle is rhombi, Opposite angles are congruent. Any pair of consecutive angles are supplementary.

### Definition of a rhombus

A rhombus is a quadrilateral with all sides equal.

### Properties of a rhombus:

All properties of parallelograms apply to rhombi.

The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each vertex angle.

The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at right angles.

The opposite angles of a rhombus are equal.

The opposite sides of a rhombus are parallel.

### Formula:

A = b × h

A = ½ × [d1 × d2]

A - the area of a rhombus

a - is the altitude (height)

d

_{1}, d

_{2}- the length of diagonals
