The figure obtained when you join the midpoint of adjacent sides of a rectangle of side 8 cm and 6 cm is a rhombus with an area of 24 cm squared. A rhombus is a parallelagram with 4 equal sides, 2 opposite equal obtuse angles and 2 opposite equal acute angles. A square is also a rhombus.

The area is calculated using a mathematical formula: 1/2 x the product of the lengths of the diagonal sides. Another way to categorize a rhombus is to say it is an equilateral quadralateral, which just means that the shape has 4 sides and all 4 of them are equal.
