Explanation

The basic properties of rhombus:

1) All the properties of a parallelogram apply (the ones that matter here are parallel sides, opposite angles are congruent, and consecutive angles are supplementary).

2) All sides are congruent by definition.

3) The diagonals bisect the angles.

4) The diagonals are perpendicular bisectors of each other.

Calculation:

Given: AC = 10 and DB = 6

Consider the rhombus.

From the property, in rhombus, two diagonals are perpendicular bisectors of each other.

In rhombus ABCD

AE=EC=AC2=102=5

DE=EB=D
