For a parallelogram, take the base times the height. For a trapezoid, take the smaller base and times it by the height.

Can a trapezoid and parallelogram have the same area?

Yes, certainly. The trapezoid area is one half sum of bases times height and the parallelogram area is base times height If the base of the parallelogram is equal to 1/2 the sum of he trapezoid bases, they have the same area

How area of parellogram help find area of trapezoid?

A parallelogram is a degenerate trapezoid: as the longer of the parallel sides of a trapezoid shrinks to the length of the shorter parallel side, the trapezoid becomes a parallelogram. It is truer to say that the area of a trapezoid helps to find the area of a parallelogram: area_trapezoid = mean_average_of_parallel_sides x distance_between_them = 1/2 sum_parallel_side_lengths x distance_between_them When the parallel sides are of equal length this becomes: area = (1/2 x 2 x length_of_parallel_sides) x distance_between_them = length_of_parallel_sides x distance_between_them = area_parallelogram

Is a parallelogram a trapezoid?

A trapezoid and a parallelogram are both quadrilaterals. A trapezoid has exactly two parallel faces. A parallelogram has two pairs of parallel faces. A parallelogram has the same both "top" and "bottom" size. A trapezoid has different both "top" and "bottom" size.


How is the formula for the area of a trapezoid related to the formula for a area of a parallelogram?

They both use perpendicular height and are in square units. Area of a trapezoid = 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*perpendicular height Area of a parallelogram = base*perpendicular height
