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 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

To measure the area of a trapezoid, you can use the formula: Area = (1/2) * (sum of the lengths of the parallel sides) * (height). Simply add the lengths of the two parallel sides together, multiply by the height, and then divide by 2 to find the area of the trapezoid.

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.

If the lengths of the bases are also given then rearrange the area of the trapezoid formula so that the height is the subject.
