# ##\$ Area of a Rhombus

When you are calculating the area of a kite, you can use the Area of a Parallelogram Formula or the Area of a Kite Formula.

This is because all rhombuses are parallelograms and all rhombuses are also kites.

$A=\frac{1}{2}pq$

$A=bh$

## How to Find the Area of a Rhombus

1. Identify which measurements are given to you (or are easy to find).
• If you use the Area of a Parallelogram Formula, you will need to know the side length of the rhombus and the perpendicular height.
• If you use the Area of a Kite Formula, you will need to know the diagonals of the rhombus.
2. Plug the measurements into the appropriate formula.
