Best Answer

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.

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