Finish Line & Beyond
In the given rhombus if we calculate the areas of all four triangles then their sumtotal will give the area of the rhombus. As you know that diagonals bisect each otherin a rhombus so AO=OC and BO = OD so all triangles will be congruent. Hence theirareas will be equal.So area of the rhombus = 4
Area of one triangle=
This shows how the formula for area of rhombus is derived.
2. Surface area
of a solid is the sum of the areas of its faces.
Surface area of a cuboid = 2(
)a cube = 6
2a cylinder = 2π
Amount of region occupied by a solid is called its
Volume of a cuboid =
