    A kite is a quadrilateral whose diagonals intersect at 90°.
    One of the diagonals is an axis of symmetry that divides the figure into two congruent triangles.
    So if "One side of a kite is 4 cm less than four times the length of another side (x). ", we have
    (4x-4) + x = 59/2
    5x = 33.5
    x=6.7 cm
    The other side = 4x-4=22.8 cm
