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.
