The are of a rombus is 6 cm^2. The area of the inscribed circle is 3 cm^2. what are the angles of the rombus?

Expert Answers

The height of the rhombus is equal to the diameter of the circle. Compute the radius of the circle given its area using:

`A=pid^2/4`  or `d=2sqrt(A/pi)`

Substitute `3cm^2` for A to obtain d.

`d=2sqrt(3/pi)=1.95 cm`

The area A of a rhombus is equal to the product of its side s by its height h.


Determine the side s by substituting `6cm^2` for A and `1.95cm` for h and solving for s.


Compute angle A using the sine trigonometric function:




The sum of all the angles of the rhombus is equal to 360 degrees. Compute the value of angles B and D.



Therefore the angles are A=C=39.28 degrees and B=D=140.74 degrees.
