Given Rhombus ABCD (not shown) AB = 10 and AC = 12. Find AD and BD
I know that AD = 10 because the sides of a rhombus are all congruent. I cannot find what BD equals though. I thought it was 12 but I don't think the diagonals of a rhombus are congruent.
Hello, Cake!
I know that AD = 10 because the sides of a rhombus are all congruent.
I cannot find what BD equals though.
I thought it was 12, but I don't think the diagonals of a rhombus are congruent.
If they were, you'd have a square.
The diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular and bisect each other.
Hence: .
In right triangle , we find thatCode:A 10 B o---------------o / * * / / *6 * / / * * / 10 / o / / * O* / / * *6 / / * * / o---------------o D C
Therefore: .
