## Perimeter of Rhombus Formula :

Perimeter of Rhombus Formula is P_{(cm)} in centimeter is equal to the four and multiply the product of all sides of equal length a_{(cm)} in centimeter. Hence the perimeter of Rhombus Formula can be written as

**P _{(cm)}=4*a**

_{(cm)}

P→ perimeter in cm

A→ all sides of equal length

Opposite sides have to be parallel.

The altitude is a distance at right angles between two parallel sides.

The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at 90 degrees.

Formula of perimeter of Rhombus

The perimeter of a rhombus is given as

**P=4*a**

a→ Length of the side of the rhombus

## Sample Problems :
