A field in the form of a rhombus has each side of length 64 m and altitude 16 m. What is the side of a square field which has the same area as that of a rhombus?
Side of rhombus = 30 m
Altitude of rhombus = 16 m
Rhombus is a type of parallelogram
Area of parallelogram = base × altitude
Area of parallelogram = 64 × 16 = 1024 m2
Since area of rhombus = area of square
Area of square = side2
Side of a square =
Side of square =
Therefore side of square = 32 m
