the diagonals intersect at right angles and bisect each other.... So you will have a right triangle with sides 3 and 4 respectively... you need to use pythagoras' theorem to find the length of the side of the rhombus(hypotenuse)

Yeap, the diagonals of the Rhombus bisect each other at right angles, so use pythagoras theorem

Pythagorean theorem a^2+b^2=c^2 gives you 5 in the triangle i drew up there XD

and as campbell says, the diagonals bisect each other.

its worth remembering the 3-4-5 triangle is a right angled also multiples of the sides i e 6-8-10, 9-12-15 etc another one is 5-12-13 - saves you using pythagoras
