# Area of the biggest possible rhombus that can be inscribed in a rectangle

Given a rectangle of length **l** and breadth **b**, the task is to find the largest rhombus that can be inscribed in the rectangle.

**Examples**:

Input : l = 5, b = 4 Output : 10 Input : l = 16, b = 6 Output : 48

From the figure, we can see, the biggest rhombus that could be inscribed within the rectangle will have its diagonals equal to the length & breadth of the rectangle.

So, Area of rhombus, **A = (l*b)/2**

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++

`// C++ Program to find the biggest rhombus ` `// which can be inscribed within the rectangle ` `#include <bits/stdc++.h> ` `using` `namespace` `std; ` ` ` `// Function to find the area ` `// of the biggest rhombus ` `float` `rhombusarea(` `float` `l, ` `float` `b) ` `{ ` ` ` `// the length and breadth cannot be negative ` ` ` `if` `(l < 0 || b < 0) ` ` ` `return` `-1; ` ` ` ` ` `// area of the rhombus ` ` ` `return` `(l * b) / 2; ` `} ` ` ` `// Driver code ` `int` `main() ` `{ ` ` ` `float` `l = 16, b = 6; ` ` ` `cout << rhombusarea(l, b) << endl; ` ` ` `return` `0; ` `} ` |
