    You know that all sides of a rhombus are equal, right?

    Rhombus, all sides are equal, set 3x-7=x+13

    Since a property of a rhombus is that the 4 sides are of equal length then, we can say that MN = ON therefore, 3x - 7 = x + 13 taking like terms then, 3x - x = 13 + 7 2x = 20 dividing both sides by 2 then , x = 10 so x must be 10
