the diagonals of a rhombus rightbisect each other, so
make a sketch and look at the rightangled triangle with angle 38° (half the 76) and leg of 4 cm
The hypotenuse is the side of the rhombus, call it x
sin 38° = 4/x
x = 4/sin38 = appr. 6.487 cm
= appr 65 mmposted by Reiny

does a rhombus has opposite angles that are supplementary yep they do..a rhombus' angles are all equivalent..so 360/4angles= 90 degrees each so if you add 90 and 90 = 180 and thus suplementary (180 deg) What do you mean by
