Area of Kites and Rhombuses - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

The area formula for a kite is found by rearranging the pieces formed by the diagonals into a rectangle. Since one side is half of a diagonal, the area of a rhombus formula is one half the product of the diagonals. An additional formula for the area of a rhombus is to use the kite formula (it works because rhombuses are technically kites). Related topics include area of parallelograms and solving formulas.
