# A rhombus is formed by joining midpoints of the rectangle in the suitable order

A rhombus is formed by joining midpoints of the rectangle in the suitable order. If the area of the rhombus is 2 square units, then the area of the rectangle is

(a) 2 sqrt.2 square units

(b) 4 square units

(c) 4 sqrt.2 square units

(d) 8 square units

**Answer: (b) 4 square units**

**Solution:-****Formula-**

**The area of the rhombus = product of both diagonals /2**

**Both diagonals of rhombus = length and breadth of rectangle**

So, the area of the rectangle = 2 x area of the rhombus

= 2 x 2

= 4 square units.

Hence, the correct answer is option (b) 4 square units.
