We have four rods of equal lengths hinged at their endpoints to
form a rhombus ABCD. Keeping AB fixed we allow CD to take all
possible positions in the plane. What is the locus (or path) of the
Four rods of equal length are hinged at their endpoints to form a
rhombus. The diagonals meet at X. One edge is fixed, the opposite
edge is allowed to move in the plane. Describe the locus of the
point X and prove your assertion.
