What is the area of a rhombus when the only given information is it's perimeter?
There are four congruent sides to a rhombus, so each side is one-quarter of the perimeter. Divide the perimeter by 4 and you've got the length of each side.
The area is base*height, but you can't know what the height is without knowing how much of a slant the thing is at compared to a square.
Hello, BrendanLoftus!
There are a brizillion answers.
More information is needed.
What is the area of a rhombus when the only given information is its perimeter?
Since a rhombus is equilateral, each side is: .$\displaystyle x \:=\:\tfrac{1}{4}\text{(perimeter)}$
But the area can range from $\displaystyle 0\text{ to }x^2.$
