### Example Question #51 : Rhombuses

If a rhombus has a base that is  times greater than the height and the height of the rhombus is equal to , find the length of one side of the rhombus.

Explanation:

To find the length of a side of the rhombus, multiply  times

Thus, the solution is:

### Example Question #1 : How To Find The Length Of The Side Of A Rhombus

Given that a rhombus has a perimeter of , find the length of one side of the rhombus.

Explanation:

The perimeter of a rhombus is equal to , where  the length of one side of the rhombus.

Since , we can set up the following equation and solve for .

### Example Question #3 : How To Find The Length Of The Side Of A Rhombus

A rhombus has an area of  square units and a height of . Find the length of one side of the rhombus.

Explanation:

To find the length of a side of the rhombus, work backwards using the formula:

Since we are given the area and the height we plug these values in and solve for the base.

### Example Question #2 : How To Find The Length Of The Side Of A Rhombus

A rhombus has an area of  square units, and a height of . Find the length of one side of the rhombus.

Explanation:

To find the length of a side of the rhombus, work backwards using the area formula:

Since we are given the area and the height we plug these values in and solve for the base.

### Example Question #3 : How To Find The Length Of The Side Of A Rhombus

A rhombus has a perimeter of . Find the length of one side of the rhombus.

Explanation:

To solve for the length of one side of the rhombus, apply the perimeter formula:

the length of one side of the rhombus.

Since we are given the area we plug this value in and solve for .

### Example Question #4 : How To Find The Length Of The Side Of A Rhombus

A rhombus has an area of  square units, and an altitude of . Find the length of one side of the rhombus.

Explanation:

Since the area is equal to  square units, use the formula:

Since we are given the area and the height, we plug these values in and solve for the base.

### Example Question #57 : Quadrilaterals

The perimeter of a rhombus is equal to . Find the length of one side of the rhombus.

Explanation:

Since

The solution is:

, where  the length of one side of the rhombus.

Thus,

### Example Question #225 : Plane Geometry

A rhombus has an area of  square units, and an altitude of . What is the length of one side of the rhombus?

Explanation:

To find the length of a side of the rhombus, work backwards using the area formula:

Since we are given the area and the height, we plug these values into the equation and solve for the base.

### Example Question #59 : Quadrilaterals

Given that a rhombus has an area of  square units and a height of , find the length of one side of the rhombus.

Explanation:

To find the length of a side of the rhombus, work backwards using the area formula:

Since we are given the area and the height, we plug these values into the equation and solve for the base.

### Example Question #8 : How To Find The Length Of The Side Of A Rhombus

If a rhombus has a perimeter of , what is the length of one side of the rhombus?

Explanation:

To find the length of a side of the rhombus, apply the formula: , where  is equal to the length of a side of the rhombus.

Since we are given the perimeter we plug that value into the equation and solve for

Therefore the solution is:
