Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Area of a rhombus is the product of the length of the diagonals divided by two.

Length of one diagonal is 8 units and the other diagonal is 16 units

Area is given by

The area of the rhombus isAnother approach is the diagonals have created 4 triangles where the base and is height is either 4 units long or 8 units long so the area of the rhombus would be the area of the 4 triangles.
