The diagonals are in the middle of the triangle so its basically it is breaking it up in 4 equal peices.

So if you are trying to find ac it would what half of it twice.

Since you have the sum of the length of the diaganols you have to make an equation equal to 20.

Assuming the rhombus is ABCD and E is the intersection of the diagonals, then we know the diagonals perpendicularly bisect each other, so AE is half of one diagonal and BE is half the other diagonal. That allows us to solve for x: (x+4) + (2x3) = 20/2 3x + 1 = 10 3x = 9 x = 3 and since BE = 2x  3 = 3 is half of BD, BD = 2*3 = 6 (answer C).

Wait!!! i messed up lol you plug the three in x+4 and multiply it by 2 because you are finding ac

For some reason i thought it was the other one. But it will be 14 in that case.
