Construct a rhombus where one of its diagonals is equal to its sides.
Let us construct a rhombus with each side of length 5 cm and diagonal AC = side = 5 cm.
Steps of Construction:
i) Draw a line segment AC of length 5 cm.
ii) With A and B as centers and radius = 5 cm, draw arcs above AC cutting each other at B.
iii) With A and B as centers and radius = 5 cm, draw arcs below AC cutting each other at D.
iv) Join AB, BC, AD and CD.
ABCD is the required rhombus.
