The answer is 24

 

because of this formula                      diagonal * diagonal/2

 

so 6*8/2 = 24

The  diagonals  of  a  rhombus  meet at right  angles

 

Side  length   =  sqrt  [  (diagonal  / 2)^2   +  ( diagonal/2)^2  ] =

 

sqrt  [ (6/2)^2  +  (8/2)^2  ]  = 

 

sqrt [ 3^2  + 4^2  ] =

 

sqrt  [ 9  + 16] = 

 

sqrt [25]   =  5

 

Area  =  product  of  diagonals  / 2  =  6 * 8  /  2  =    48  / 2  = =  24
