The diagonals are perpendicular to one another. The shorter diagonal is bisected by the longer diagonal. The kite is symmetrical about the longer diagonal. The longer diagonal bisects the angles at each end of the diagonal.

Use Pythagoras: Diagonal² = √(2 × sidelength²) → diagonal = side_length × √2 → diagonal = 10 cm × √2 ≈ 14.1 cm

Use Pythagoras: Diagonal² = √(2 × sidelength²) → diagonal = side_length × √2 → diagonal = 5.1 cm × √2 ≈ 7.2 cm

Using Pythagoras: diagonal² = side² + side² = 2 × side² → side² = diagonal² ÷ 2 area = side² = diagonal² ÷ 2 → diagonal² = 2 × area → diagonal = √(2 × area) = √(2 × 36) = 6√2 ≈ 8.49
