Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is the measurements for your trapezoid?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a = base, b = base, and h = height

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll be right back. Tag me when you get the measurements!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Length of the bases, and h is the height, to answer the question. How many square feet of grass are there on a trapezoid field with a height of 175ft and the bases of 125ft and 81ft

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where A is area b1 and b2 ar the ^^length of the bases. (it's before that post.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alrighty your overall area equals A = 18,025.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you have an idea of how I got that?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not entirely. That's why I'm confused.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0IS there anyway you can describe it?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so, a is your "top base" or the top measure of your trapezoid so the smallest measurement for the bases is what you'll plug in for a base.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because "b" is always the bottom of your trapezoid.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So plug those into the equation for me.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 81 }{ 125 }\] is this correct?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plug in base "a" and base "b"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The equation for a trapezoid is a + b divided by 2 = h

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes! so now our equation looks like this: 81 + 125 _________ = h 2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What do we plug in for h?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Where did you get 103?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait. I'm doing something wrong.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're not adding quite yet!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your equation right now if you plugged in h = 175

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0should look like this: 8 + 125 ________ = 175 2

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 81+ 125}{ 2} =h\]

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes! Now, plug in for h = height

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. oh wait. I just rechecked the equation. its 75 not 175. Does the equation still stay the same?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, so now we just want to plug in 75 for h instead of 175

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 81+125 }{ 2}=75\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes!!!! Now, solve the fraction part of your equation first!

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I already divided for you just solve that for me.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, A (area) = 7,725

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. So is that it?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, let me show you the whole equation so you can use it next time.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A = a + b/2 * h = 81 + 125/2 * 75 = 7725
