## anonymous 3 years ago This trapezoid is made up of 3 congruent isosceles triangles. Find the exact area of the trapezoid. It will be helpful to ask yourself how the Pythagorean Theorem can be used to your advantage.

you need to find the height of the trapezoid |dw:1360563467138:dw| when you know h then us eht formula $A = \frac{1}{2}\times height(h) \times (a + b)$ a and b are the lengths of the parallel sides, 24 and 12 hope this helps
