    Okay do you know that the area of a trapezoid = (1/2)*(sum of parallel sides)*height. ??

    the area of this is the sum of the area of the three triangles

    yeah, but i don't even need to find the area of the three triangles, though lgba, you are right too. The length of the two parallel sides = a and b each. height of the trapezoid (or distance between the parallel sides) = a + b Can you work this out now, @JessAmazzing

    no worries. what's the length of each parallel side? And so what would be their sum??

    |dw:1338400172456:dw| area of P is ab/2 of Q is c^2/2 of R is ab/2 as P and R are triangles, also Q but it is half of the square of side c
