Theory:

To calculate the area of the rhombus:
• Using the base and height.
• Using the diagonals
Using the base and height: We multiply the base with height to get the area of a rhombus.

Area of rhombus $=\phantom{\rule{0.147em}{0ex}}b×h$ square units.
Where '$$b$$' is denoted as base, and '$$h$$' is denoted as height.

Using the diagonals: We multiply both the diagonals, and then divide by $$2$$ to get the area of a rhombus.

Area of rhombus $=\frac{1}{2}{d}_{1}×{d}_{2}$ square units.
Where '$$d$$' is denoted as diagonals.
