Dear harshit

point of intersection of these two line are (1,1)

digonal cut each other at mid point

length of second digonal

area=1/2 *d1 *d2 *sinθ     where θ is angel between these two lines

8 =1/2 *4 *d2 *3/5

d2=20/3

BD=20/3

now you can find the point on line AC which is at d1/2=2 unit in both the direction of point (1,1)

these points will be A and C

similarly  you can find the point on line BD which is at d2/2=10/3 unit in both the direction of point (1,1)

these points will be Band D

once you know the point you can easly find the length of sides
