What is the area?

Remember that the area of a trapezoid is:

$Area=\frac{1}{2}\;\cdot\;height\;\cdot\;(base_1\;+\;base_2)$

Find the bases and height of the trapezoid.

base1: 10 in

base2: 5 in

height: 8 in

Use these numbers in the formula.

$Area=\frac{1}{2}\;\cdot\;height\;\cdot\;(base_1\;+\;base_2)=\frac{1}{2}\;\cdot\;8\;\cdot\;(10+5)=60$

Now find the units. The lengths are measured in inches, so the area is measured in square inches.

The area is 60 square inches.
