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

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

Area = Base * Height so Base = Area/Height

Area = (1/2) x (height) x (length of lower base + length of upper base)

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

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

A trapezoid has one height: vertical measurement from top to bottom, and two bases: horizontal measurement on top and horizontal measurement on bottom. To find the area, you add the two bases together, multiply that by the height, and then divide by 2.

Cut in half to make two trapazoids and find the area of one of the trapazoids. Don't forget to multiply the answers by two becasue you only found the area of half of the hexagon. If you want to get really tricky or forget the trapazoid formula then cut in in sixths and find the area of a triangle. Then multiply the answer by six.

Perimeter = sum of lengths of sides.

Area of a trapezoid in square units = 0.5*(sum of parallel sides)*height Perimeter = sum of its 4 sides

Yes.
