Think of the rhombus as a rectangle where the lines joining the midpoints are the diagonals of the rhombus.
The area of a rhombus is therefore half of product of its diagonals.
So 15*D/2=165.
Solve for D.

A Area
AC and BD diagonals
A=AC*BD/2
165=15*BD/2
2*165=15*BD
330=15*BD Divide with 15
BD=330/15=22
go to wikipedia and type rhombus
