To find the difference between the areas of the two rhombuses, we need to calculate the areas of each rhombus and then find the difference.

The formula for the area of a rhombus is given by ( \text{Area} = \frac{d_1 \times d_2}{2} ), where (d_1) and (d_2) are the lengths of the diagonals of the rhombus.

Given that the sides of both rhombuses have lengths of 12, we can use trigonometric properties to find the lengths of the diagonals.

For the rhombus with a corner angle of ( \frac{\pi}{12} ):

- Since the opposite angles of a rhombus are congruent, the angle between the diagonals is ( \frac{\pi}{12} + \frac{\pi}{12} = \frac{\pi}{6} ).
- Using trigonometric properties, we can find that ( d_1 = 12 \times \csc(\frac{\pi}{6}) ) and ( d_2 = 12 \times \csc(\frac{\pi}{6}) ).

For the rhombus with a corner angle of ( \frac{5\pi}{8} ):

- Similarly, the angle between the diagonals is ( \frac{5\pi}{8} + \frac{5\pi}{8} = \frac{5\pi}{4} ).
- Therefore, ( d_1 = 12 \times \csc(\frac{5\pi}{4}) ) and ( d_2 = 12 \times \csc(\frac{5\pi}{4}) ).

Now, calculate the areas of both rhombuses using the formula ( \text{Area} = \frac{d_1 \times d_2}{2} ), and then find the difference between the two areas.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
