So far this is what I have-

1/2(264)=132 132/2=66

66-12=44units

Is this the correct process?

Sketch the rhombas. One diagonal is 12, so half that diagonal is 6.

call that half b, so 2b=12

now call half the other diagonal a

so the length of that diagonal is 2a, and that is what you are looking for.

Now, the diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular bisectors, so you have four right triangles, the area of which is

1/2 a b=264/4

or ab=132, but a=6, so a=22

which means 2a=44, so your answer is correct.
