Both together are sufficient.

From the area formula A = .5(d1d2) , knowing one diagonal you can solve for the other.

For kicks--
140=.5*48*x
140=24x
x=5/6

(I think)

The "official" answer is D, but as far as I know, you cannot relate the length of one diagonal of a rhombus to its sides. I think it should be C as well.

area od rhombus = ( d1 * d2 ) /2
perimeter of rhombus = 4a
a = sqrt( sqr(d1/2) + sqr(d2/2) )
Answer should be D because we can find d1 and d2 given bothe the conditions.

could you pls put in the values and show how both statements, individually, are sufficient??

A) area = d1.d2/2
B) D1=48

how do we find "a" using these independently???

I think what anand meant was C. Since it said "since both are given....". Anand is this what you meant.

I think Ans is C.
