What is a Rhombus?
A rhombus is most commonly recognized as a diamond,but they are not limited to this shape.
Let's take a look at 14 properties of a rhombus.

A Rhombus is a Quadrilateral, which means it has four sides, and the sides of a rhombus are congruent.

The opposite sides of a rhombus are parallel.

The opposite angles of a Rhombus are congruent.

The diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular.

The diagonals of a Rhombus create form four congruent interior triangles.

The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other which means they cut each other in half.

The formula for finding the perimeter of a Rhombus equals 4 x sides

The formula for area equals ½ d1 * d2
d = length of the diagonals

A rhombus has all the properties of a parallelogram which include,opposite sides are congruent,the opposite angles are congruent, and the diagonals bisect each other.

All squares can be considered a rhombus, but all rhombuses are considered squares

The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other, but do not have to be the same length
