Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well we have D(4,4), E(4,4), F(2,3) and G(2,3) for our points so if we connect those points we get our sides. You can simply count the distance between these points if you draw this on graph paper

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you actually do not need the last side length, as the formula for a trapezoid is h{(a+b)/2 where a and b are the bases, 4 and 8. To find the height, all you do is count the vertical distance from a to b.
