Area of a kite is calculated by dividing the product of its diagonals by 2.

**A = (d1 × d2) ÷ 2**

Where *A* is the area, *d1* is one diagonal, and *d2* is the other diagonal.

This formula also works to find the area of a rhombus or a square.

Example:

If *d1 = 4* units and *d2 = 6* units

then *A = ?*

A = (d1 × d2) ÷ 2 = (4 × 6) ÷ 2 = 24 ÷ 2 = 12 square unites

Notes:

Diagonals of a kite are perpendicular on each other.

A kite has two pairs of adjacent sides that are congruent.
