Perimeter of Rhombus Formula and Sample Problems

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 :

Example 1:

Calculate the perimeter of a rhombus having a side of 6cm ?

Solution :

Given,

a=6cm

The perimeter of a rhombus=4*a

The perimeter ofa rhombus=4*6

The perimeter of a rhombus=24cm

Example 2:

Calculate the perimeter of a rhombus having a side of 9 cm?

Solution :

Given,

a=9cm

The perimeter of a rhombus=4*a

The perimeter of a rhombus=4*9

The perimeter of a rhombus=36 cm
