Its area is: 0.5*(2.3+8.1)*6.5 = 33.8 square meters
Area in square units = 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*height
Area = 0.5*Base*Height
To find the area of a trapezoid you have to use the equations: [Height divided by 2] x [base1+base2] and the answer you get is the area of the trapezoid.
You can find the height of a parallelogram given the area and base measures by working backwards from the area formula. The area of a parallelogram is found with the formula: Area = Base * Height To solve this equation for Height, we divide both sides by the base. Area / Base = (Base * Height) / Base Simplify: Area / Base = Height
It is found by: base = (area*2)/height
base = (2*area)/height
Divide the area by height then you get the base.
Area = 1/2 * base * height.
The relation between the height of a triangle, its base and its area is given by: Area = 0.5 * Base * Height Therefore, we have: Height = (2 * Area)/ Base.
Area = 1/2*Base*Height so Base = 2*Area/Height
Divide the area by the height
