    I'm sorry, they way the question is written, it makes no sense. Perhaps you need to post an image of the question or include the type of shape you are working on

    the formula is \[A = \frac{1}{2} \times ( b_{1} + b_{2}) \times h\] great so leave it as a fraction 3/4 now find 1/2 of 3/4 or 1/2 x 3/4 = leave the answer as a fraction

    when you get the answer, to finish multiply by the height h = 1 so Area = 1 x 1/2 x 3/4
