### From Conservapedia

A square is a special case of a rhombus where all four interior angles are ninety degrees.

In non-academic contexts, the term diamond can be applied to a rhombus, particularly if it is oriented with one of its diagonals vertical.^{[1]}

Its area is the product of its diagonals divided by two. Note that its diagonals are perpendicular to each other, and bisect each other.

In symbolic form, the area of a rhombus having diagonals of lengths D_{1} and D_{2} is:

This area also equals the length of a side (B) multiplied by the length of the perpendicular between two opposite sides (H):
