The length of its median will be the same length as its line of symmetry.

28.5

28.5

If it is the line joining the midpoints of the parallel sides it most certainly is not.

The median is 28.5 units long.

23.5 Units

25.5 units

The length of the median is halfway between that of the bases. Since the difference between the the longer base and the median is 4 yards (22 - 18), the shorter base must be 4 yards shorter than the median, or 18 - 4, which is indeed 14 yards.Answer 114 yards.

23.5

To find the median of a trapezoid, you add the bases together then divide by 2. So in this case the equation would be: (12 + 16) ÷ 2 =M. 28 ÷ 2= M M= 14

The average of the bases of a trapezoid is the median.

There is no simple formula and, in any case, the answer will depend on what information about the trapezoid is given.
