1. Thanks to update,I Like to see another post in your blog, web 2 print solution and door hangers Use ful to me and my friend keep updates Wholesale Printing Articles.

2. Hey, could anyone explain to me how to calculate the solution of the 2nd one

1. BD should be 6cm. (answer updated)
In a rhombus all sides are equal. i.e. AB = BC = CD = AD = 6cm.
See triangle ABD is an isosceles triangle. AB = BD. Thus ∠ADB = ∠ABD
Since ∠A = 60, using angle sum property, ∠ADB = ∠ABD = 60.
Thus triangle ABD is an equilateral triangle. Hence, BD = 6cm

3. could anyone tell me, how to do no.10

4. how to do the 1st one??
