A trapezium is a two dimensional figure. It can be said to have 0 or infinite height, therefore the volume of all trapezia is 0 or infinite. The area of a trapezium can be found by the multiplying the mean average of the parallel sides by the perpendicular height between them. If a and b are the lengths of the parallel sides, and h is the perpendicular height between them, then: area_trapezium = ½(a + b) × h If you have a trapezoidal prism, then its volume is given by the area of the trapezia at the ends multiplied by the length (l) between them: volume_trapezoidal_prism = ½(a + b) × h × l

A quadrilateral, which includes squares, rhombi, parallellograms and trapezia...

There are infinitly many types. However some broad (and not necessaryly exclusive) classes of trapezia are Right trapezia (with at least 1 right angle) Isoceles trapeziea (the non parallel sides are equal in length) parallelograms (both pairs of sides are parallel)

The vertical cross sections are trapezia or triangles. The horizontal cross sections are rectangles which are mathematically similar to the base.

A trapezium is a 2D shape; volume it an attribute of 3D shapes. The volume of all trapezia is 0.

It depends on isosceles WHAT? There are isosceles triangles, isosceles trapezia, for example.

all you do is find the area of the circle... if you mean find the squares area, find the area of the circle, and then the square's area and subtract the squares area to the circles area

-- Find out the population of the area. -- Find out the area of the area. -- Divide the population by the area. The result is the population density of the area.
