### The diagonals of a rhombus are 16 cm and 30 cmfind the length of its sides pls show the solution?

Please note that the diagonals cross one another at right angles, and bisect one another. You should draw a diagram to visualize this. From this center point, where the diagonals cross, you have a RIGHT TRIANGLE that involves half of one diagonal, half of the other diagonal, and one of the sides of the rhombus. This lets you use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve for the length of the side.

### What is the length of one side of the rhombus if the diagonals of a rhombus have lengths of 12 centimeters and 16 centimeters?

Since the diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular and bisect each other, then we can use the Pythagorean theorem to find the length of the side of the rhombus. So in the right triangle, whose length of the legs are 6 and 8 centimeters, the hypotenuse length (the length of the side of the rhombus) is √(62 + 82) = √(36 + 64) = √100 = 10 cm.

### What is the length of a diagonal in parallelogram when both the sides are given?

It cannot be determined. Think of a square and distort it as a rhombus. As the rhombus gets flatter, one of the diagonals becomes smaller and the other becomes larger. The same applies to a parallelogram. You can only determine the maximum or minimum length of the diagonals. The maximum is the sum of the two sides, the minimum is zero. Neither extreme is attainable but you can get as close to them as you… Read More

### Prove that if the diagonal of a parallelogram does not bisect the angles through the vertices to which the diagonal is drawn the parallelogram is not a rhombus?

Suppose that the parallelogram is a rhombus (a parallelogram with equal sides). If we draw the diagonals, isosceles triangles are formed (where the median is also an angle bisector and perpendicular to the base). Since the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, and the diagonals don't bisect the vertex angles where they are drawn, then the parallelogram is not a rhombus.
