Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeap, the diagonals of the Rhombus bisect each other at right angles, so use pythagoras theorem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its worth remembering the 345 triangle is a right angled also multiples of the sides i e 6810, 91215 etc another one is 51213  saves you using pythagoras
