The formula for the area of a trapezium is: \[A = \left(\frac{a+b}2\right)\times h\]

but how do i find the height?
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
you have a value for the area \(A\), and you have the lengths of the bases \(a\), \(b\) solve for the height \(h\)

rearranging \[A = \left(\frac{a+b}2\right)\times h\\\qquad\Downarrow\\A\times\left(\frac{2}{a+b}\right)=h\]
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
yeah, you can substitute the values in before rearranging, if you want to
