The perimeter of a rhombus is the sum of the lengths of all its sides. Since a rhombus has four congruent sides, its perimeter can be calculated by multiplying the length of one side by 4.

Perimeter of a rhombus = 4 x side length

Real-life examples of rhombuses include diamond shapes, road signs, and some types of kites. Knowing the perimeter of a rhombus can be useful in various applications such as construction, engineering, and design. For example, if you are designing a diamond-shaped pendant and need to determine the length of the chain required to fit around the perimeter, you can use the perimeter formula for a rhombus.

The formula for determining the perimeter of a rhombus is defined as:

\(P\) \(=\) \(4\) \(\cdot\) \(a\)

\(P\): the perimeter of the rhombus

\(a\): the length of any side

The SI unit of perimeter is: \(meter\text{ }(m)\)
