recall these properties:

-all sides of rhombus are equal.

-the diagonals of rhombus are perpendicular (forms four 90 degree angles)

-area of rhombus, if diagonals are given, can be calculated by

A = d1 * d2 /2

where d1 & d2 are the diagonal lengths

-side of a rhombus, if diagonals are given, can be calculated by

s = sqrt(d1^2 + d2^2)

*note that this is just pythagorean theorem

applying these,

A = 24*18/2

A = 216 m^2

s = sqrt(24^2 + 18^2)

s = sqrt(900)

s = 30 m

P = 4*s

P = 4*30

P = 120 m

hope this helps~ :)

A=D1*D2 LIKE D=24 AND 18. SO 24*18=432. THEREFORE AREA=432 . AND SIDE= SQRT D1*2+D2*2 . SO GIVEN D1 AND D2 =24 AND 18 =SQRT 24^2 +18^2= 576+324 =900 THEREFORE SIDE= sqrt900=30.
