Hi Lillian.
If you were to cut the end off a rhombus and attach the cutoff triangle to the other side of the rhombus, it would fit perfectly, forming a rectangle, but the area would have to be the same as the original rhombus.
Since the area of a rectangle is just the length times the height and you know the length is 14", you just have to calculate the height. Take a closer look at the cutoff piece. It is a right triangle. You know the length of the hypotenuse (14") and one of the angles is 60 degrees, so you can use sine or cosine to determine the height of the
rectangle.
Hope this helps!
