# Perimeter of Rhombus Formula

When a Rhombus is concerned, it is a flat shape with four same sides and four angles that are NOT necessarily 90 degrees. A rhombus is often called as a diamond or diamond shaped. The total distance traveled along the border of a rhombus is the perimeter of a rhombus. We can also call a square as a rhombus, because it satisfies all the condition that a rhombus has.

Rhombus has:

- All sides of Equal length
- Opposite sides have to be parallel.
- The altitude is a distance at right angles to two sides.
- The diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other at 90 degrees.

The perimeter of a rhombus is given as:

\[\large P=4\times a\]

### Solved Examples

**Question: **Find the perimeter of a rhombus having side as 5 cm ?

**Solution:**

Given,

*a* = 5 cm

Perimeter of a rhombus = 4 × a

Perimeter of a rhombus = 4 × 5

Perimeter of a rhombus = 20
