  1. Rhombus(noun)

    same as Rhomb, 1

  2. Origin: [L.]


  1. Rhombus

    In Euclidean geometry, a rhombus, plural rhombi or rhombuses, is a simple quadrilateral whose four sides all have the same length. Another name is equilateral quadrilateral, since equilateral means that all of its sides are equal in length. The rhombus is often called a diamond, after the diamonds suit in playing cards, or a lozenge, though the latter sometimes refers specifically to a rhombus with a 45° angle. Every rhombus is a parallelogram, and a rhombus with right angles is a square.
