**drwls**, Saturday, June 12, 2010 at 1:58amA rhombus has equal side lengths. The two intersecting diagonals create four congruent right triangles of area 30 cm^2 each.

Let side length = a

30 = (1/2)*5* sqrt(a^2 -5^2)

12 = sqrt(a^2 -25)

144 = a^2 -25

a^2 = 169

a = 13

The length of the other diagonal is

2*sqrt[(13^2 - 5^2)] = 24 cm

Interesting problem!
