Derivation of the Area of a Rhombus

A rhombus is a parallelogram whose sides are congruent. The diagonals of rhombus are perpendicular to each other. They also bisect each other. In this post, we are going to find the general formula for finding the area of a rhombus using these properties. We are going to learn two methods. Method 1 Consider the […]

Proof Without Words: If x >0, x + 1/x >=2

A picture is worth a thousand words, even in mathematics. Most of the time, complicated algebraic statements can be shown using geometric representations. One example is the sum of which when added equals 1. In this post, we show another geometric proof without words. Proof without words is not a proof per se but rather […]

Why the Area of a Rhombus is Half the Product of its Diagonals

A rhombus is a parallelogram with four congruent sides. Since it is a parallelogram, it has also all the properties of a parallelogram. One of these properties is that the diagonals bisect each other. That is, they divide each other into two equal parts. Another property of a rhombus is that the diagonals are perpendicular. So, summarizing all […]
