    What work have you already done on this assignment?

    Do you know what a fibonacci sequence is? If so measure the area of each rhombus and try to establish a relationship between the these areas and the sequence.

    Well start measuring the areas of each rhombus.

    Read this. Area of a Rhombus

    Do these numbers make a fibonacci sequence?

    Firstly, I am given no values to find the area of the rhombus but I can find the area of a rhombus using that example which gives me a number and two variables.

    Secondly, it's asking me to create a sequence by determining the area of the first four rhombuses/diamonds... I have no idea which ones are the first four "rhombuses/diamonds" Is it like finding the area of 4 rhombuses and adding them together to make a sequence out of it?
