You don't. There is not enough information. Different rhombuses with the same side lengths can have different areas, depending on the angles.

Equilateral? * * * * * No. Equilateral means only that the sides have equal lengths - not that the angles are also equal. A rhombus, for example is equilateral but not equiangular. The correct answer is "regular".

All sides of a rhombus are the same length. Of the other parallelograms, only the square has identical side lengths (it differs from a rhombus by having four right angles).

By using trigonometry

A rhombus has 4 right angles just like the square * * * * * In general a rhombus has a pair of equal obtuse angles and a pair of equal acute angles. It is only in a special case that the shape has 4 right angles and then it is called a square.

All sides of a rhombus are the same length. Of the other parallelograms, only the square has identical side lengths (it differs from a rhombus by having four right angles).

By using trigonometry

A rectangle is a form of quadrilateral parallelogram, where all angles are of ninety (90) degrees. A rhombus is a quadrilateral parallelogram where all sides are the same length. The only time when a rhombus is a rectangle and vice versa is when both side lengths and angles are equal, i.e. when the shape is a square.

The main difference between a square and a rhombus is that a square has all its angles equal to 90 degrees and a rhombus does not. A square has 4 lines of symmetry while rhombus only has 2. The diagonal lengths of a square are of the same measure. Rhombus diagonal lengths are of different measures. They are both a quadrilateral, all sides are equal in length, and opposite sides are parallel to each other.

I can have only four angles

No. A rhombus, in general, has a pair of acute angles opposite one another, and a pair of obtuse angles. It is only as a special case that all four angles are right angles and so the rhombus becomes a square.So every rhombus is NOT a square but every square is a special type of rhombus.

Since the diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular between them, then in one forth part of the rhombus they form a right triangle where hypotenuse is the side of the rhombus, the base and the height are one half part of its diagonals. Let's take a look at this right triangle.The base and the height lengths could be congruent if and only if the angles opposite to them have a measure of 45â°, which is impossible to a rhombus because these angles have different measures as they are one half of the two adjacent angles of the rhombus (the diagonals of a rhombus bisect the vertex angles from where they are drawn), which also have different measures (their sum is 180â° ).Therefore, the diagonals of a rhombus are not congruent as their one half are not (the diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other).

ALWAYSevery square is a rhombus, but every rhombus is not a square.A square must have right angles and a rhombus does not have to have those.A rhombus is a quadrilateral with equal length sides, and can have oblique angles or right angles. A square only has right angles. A rhombus with right angles is a square. Other rhombi are not squares.By these definitions, all squares are rhombi, but not all rhombi are squares

Yes. A square is a special type of rhombus with only right angles.
