Spring, 1999: We can divide it into two congruent triangles using diagonal d_1. Since the diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular to each other, we can use d_1 as base and one half of d_2 as the height of the upper triangle (Why?). If we let A_T be the area of the upper triangle, then, calculating its area, we have A_T = \frac{1}{2}bh A_T = \frac{1}{}2(d_1)(\frac{1}{2}d_2) A_T= \frac{1}{4}(d_1)(d_2). Now, we only calculated for the area of the upper triangle. Since the area of the rhombus is twice the area of the upper triangle, we multiply A_T by 2. That is, A = 2A_T A = 2(\frac{1}{4}d_1d_2) A = \frac{1}{2}d_1d_2. Method 2 The second method is to enclose the rhombus with a rectangle. This can be done by drawing lines parallel to the diagonals and passing through the vertices (see figure below).
