# How to Calculate and Solve for the Length and Perimeter of a Rhombus | Nickzom Calculator The image above is a rhombus.

To compute the area of a rhombus, one essential parameter is needed and this parameter is length of side (a).

The formula for calculating the perimeter of a rhombus:

P = 4a

Where;
P = Perimeter of the rhombus
a = length of side

Let’s solve an example;
Find the perimeter of a rhombus when the length of side is 30 cm.

This implies that;
a = Length of side = 30 cm

P = 4a
P = 4 x 30
P = 120

Therefore, the perimeter of the rhombus is 120 cm.

Calculating the Length of Side using the Perimeter of the Rhombus.

a = P / 4

Where;
a = Length of Side
P = Perimeter of the rhombus

Let’s solve an example;
Given that the perimeter of the rhombus is 180 cm. Find the length of side?

a = P / 4

This implies that;
P = perimeter of the rhombus = 180 cm

a = P / 4
a = 180 / 4
a = 45

Therefore, the length of side is 45 cm.
