do you have graph paper with you?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yea.

  • anonymous
I plug in already those numbers in my graph.

Looking for something else?

ok. Choose a spot near the middle and draw arrows going down up, left, and right|dw:1442234895246:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
have you done that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1442234952424:dw| i'm not sure.

now, |dw:1442234977397:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
then plot your coordinates

DOne.

nice job
anonymous
  • anonymous
I put those numbers in my graph already.
anonymous
  • anonymous
so do you know what shape that is?

  • anonymous
it is a trapezoid, do you know the formula?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think like that.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yea
anonymous
  • anonymous
then plug in your side lengths to the formula and there is your area
anonymous
  • anonymous
what did you get as your final result?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Wait. How do i find the sides.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I just put dots in my graph to draw the trapezoid.
anonymous
  • anonymous
did you draw what you posted on the graph labeled with numbers?
anonymous
  • anonymous
No.
anonymous
  • anonymous
When i look at it, it looks like trapezoid.
anonymous
  • anonymous
But i don't know yet the exact numbers of those sides.
anonymous
  • anonymous
well 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
do you understand?
anonymous
  • anonymous
OK let, me check
anonymous
  • anonymous
tell me what you get
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1442235773941:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
you 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.

I get it now. I find the area already. Thanks for helping LOL ^_^
