what trapezoid

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.

BASExHIEGHT=AREA

Area of a trapezoid: 0.5*(sum of its parallel sides)*height

answer

Area of a trapezoid = 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*height

You have to cut the trapezoid into three shapes. The three shapes will be two triangles and one rectangle or square. You have to find the area of these three shapes and then add all of the three areas up to find the area of the trapezoid.

The dimensions for area are [L2]

The height of the trapezoid is also needed to find its area which is as follows:- Area of a trapezoid = 0.5*(sum of bases or parallel sides)*height

Area of a trapezoid: 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*height

Height of trapezoid = 2*area/sum of parallel sides

The area of a trapezoid is equal to the height, multiplied by the average of the two widths.
