**Definition**

A rhombus is a parallelogram with four congruent sides. If a parallelogram has two consecutive sides congruent, it is a rhombus. A rhombus looks like a diamond. Watch Construction of Rhombus Video to learn more.

**Rhombus**

A Rhombus is a flat shape with 4 equal straight sides. Also opposite sides are parallel and opposite angles are equal. It is a type of parallelogram. All sides of a rhombus are equal in length. Opposite sides are parallel two each other. The altitude of a rhombus is the perpendicular distance from the base to the opposite side . There are several ways to find the area of a rhombus. The most common is (base × altitude). Distance around the rhombus.

**Construct a rhombus given one side and one angle:**

Construct a rhombus ABCD in which AB = 6 cm and Angle A = 60

Steps of construction:

Step 1: Draw line segment AB = 6 cm.

Step 2: Construct Angle BAX = 60.

Step 3: With A as the centre and radius equal to 6 cm , draw an arc on ray AX.

Step 4: Mark the point of intersection as D.

Step 5: With D as the centre and radius equal to 6 cm, draw an arc.

Step 6: With B as the centre and the same radius, draw another arc such that it intersects the previous arc at C.

Step 7: Join points C, D and points C, B.

ABCD is the required rhombus.
