A kite is an illustration of a rhombus in real life. Despite having a rhombus shape, a kite is not a rhombus.
A rhombus is a form of parallelogram, while a parallelogram is a simple quadrilateral with two sets of parallel sides. The rhombus is flat and has four straight, equal sides. The lengths of all four sides are identical, as are the opposite angles. Use the following formula to determine the area of a rhombus: area = height x side length. To get the perimeter, multiply the length of each side by four.
