Examples, solutions, videos, worksheets, games, and activities to help Geometry students learn how to find the area of kites and rhombuses.
Area of Kites and Rhombuses
The area formula for a kite is found by rearranging the pieces formed by the diagonals into a rectangle. Since one side is half of a diagonal, the area of a rhombus formula is one half the product of the diagonals. An additional formula for the area of a rhombus is to use the kite formula (it works because rhombuses are technically kites)
The following figures give the area formula for rhombus and kite. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions.
