## Are the diagonals of a rhombus unequal?

In rhombus, the diagonals are perpendicular bisectors to each other, but not equal in length. This means that diagonals cut each other in half.

## What is the relationship between diagonals in a rhombus?

In any rhombus, the diagonals (lines linking opposite corners) bisect each other at right angles (90°). That is, each diagonal cuts the other into two equal parts, and the angle where they cross is always 90 degrees. In the figure above drag any vertex to reshape the rhombus and convince your self this is so.

**How do you find the side of a rhombus when the diagonals are given?**

Recall that in a rhombus, the diagonals are not only perpendicular to each other, but also bisect one another. Thus, we can find the lengths of half of each diagonal and use that in the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of the side of the rhombus.

**Which are unequal diagonals?**

i, iv, v.

### Do the diagonals of a rhombus meet at right angles?

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

### What is the relationship between diagonals?

The diagonals of the quadrilateral bisect each other. The diagonals divide the quadrilateral into two pairs of congruent triangles. The intersection point of the diagonals is also the intersection point of the lines connecting the midpoints of the opposite sides of the quadrilateral (Figure 4).

**What is the difference between square and rhombus?**

The key difference between square and rhombus is square has all its angle equal to 90 degrees, but rhombus does not have. But both the shapes have all their sides as equal.

**What is the relationship between diagonals and sides?**

Well we said that the number of diagonals is equal to the number of sides times the quantity of n minus 3 or the number of sides minus 3 all divided by 2.

## What is the perimeter of a rhombus?

The total distance traveled along the border of a rhombus is the perimeter of a rhombus. We can also call a square as a rhombus, because it satisfies all the condition that a rhombus has. Rhombus has: All sides of Equal length. Opposite sides have to be parallel. The altitude is a distance at right angles to two sides.

## Do the opposite sides of a rhombus have to be parallel?

Opposite sides have to be parallel. The altitude is a distance at right angles between two parallel sides. The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at 90 degrees. The perimeter of a rhombus is given as:

**What is the shape of rhombus?**

Rhombus is a flat shape with four equal sides and four angles that are NOT necessarily 90 degrees. A rhombus is often called as a diamond or diamond-shaped object. The total distance travelled along the border of a rhombus is the perimeter of a rhombus.
