Best Answer

-- Add the lengths of the two 'bases' (the two parallel sides).

-- Multiply the sum by the height of the trapezoid.

-- Take 1/2 of the product. That's the trapezoid's area.

A trapazoid!

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

Area = Base * Height so Base = Area/Height

Area in square units = 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*height

A trapazoid.

Yes.

You multiply the width and the length, which is the top and the side and there you have your area

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

Area = Base * Height so Base = Area/Height

Area of a trapezoid = (1/2) x (height) x (top length + bottom length). A trapezoid has no volume. It's a 2-dimensional (flat) figure that can be drawn on a piece of paper, and holds no water.

.it is base 1 +base 2 ÷2 ×hight.get it?

I dont know do i look like your friggen math teacher:$grrr.

Area = 0.5*(9+5)*3 = 21 square inches
