The area of a rhombus or kite with diagonals d1 and d2 is given by: \(\displaystyle{A}={\left(\frac{{1}}{{2}}\right)}{d}_{1}{d}_{2}\)
Substitute \(d_1=25d\) inches and \(d_2=15\) inches: \(\displaystyle{A}={\left(\frac{{1}}{{2}}\right)}{\left({25}\right)}{\left({15}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle{A}={\left(\frac{{1}}{{2}}\right)}{\left({375}\right)}\)
\(\displaystyle{A}={187.5}\ in^{{2}}\)
