Area of a kite

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

Kite of a rectangle

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.
