The diagonals of a rhombus are in 2:1. If the perimeter of the rhombus is 120cm, find the length of the diagonals.

  • geometry - ,

    Perimeter = 120 cm
    Length of each side = 120/4 = 30
    Let the diagonals be x and 2x.

    Use Pythagoras theorem to calculate each side in terms of the half diagonals, x/2 and x.

    30 = sqrt((x/2)²+x²)
    Square both sides:
    900 = (x/2)²+x²=(5/4)x²
    x²=720
    x=?
