DIAGONALS: 12 and 16 cm.

The diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular bisectors of each other

and form 4 congruent right triangles.

The legs of a triangle are: X=12cm/2=6cm, and Y=16cm/2=8 cm.

The length of each side is:S^2=X^2+Y^2=

6^2+8^2=100sq.cm, S=10cm. NOTE:All sides of the rhombus are equal.
