Construct a rhombus, when one of its diagonal is 5.5 cm and the side is 3.3 cm.
To construct the rhombus, we go through the following steps :
i) Draw AC = 5.5 cm.
ii) With A as centre and radius 3.3 cm, draw two arcs one above AC and the other below AC.
iii) With C as centre and radius 3.3 cm draw two arcs one above AC and the other below AC intersecting the arcs of Step 2 in B and D respectively.
iv) Join AB, BC, CD and AD.
ABCD is the required rhombus.
