In this video, we learn how to find the area of a trapezoid. The formula to figure out how to find the answer is: Area= 1/2x (base1 x base2) x height. Now, find the bases and the height of the trapezoid. Remember that the height must always be perpendicular to the bases. Once you have found these, add the bases and multiply by the height. You can use a calculator to do this or do it off hand if you're good with math. For the third step, divide the answer by 2 and then write down the answers with the units following to finish!
