How to find area of Trapezoid?

If the bases of a trapezoid are 8 cm and 12 cm, and the height is 6 cm. How can you find the area of the trapezoid?

 At first, you have to add (8+12)= 20. Then multiply by 6, and you will get 120 cm2 . Then divide by 2, and the result will be 60 cm2.

2. If the bases of a trapezoid are 7 cm and 11 cm, and the height is 10 cm. What is the area of the trapezoid?

 At first, you have to add (7+11)= 18. Then multiply by 10, and you will get 180 cm2 . Then divide by 2, and the result will be 90 cm2.

3. If the bases of a trapezoid are 6 cm and 8 cm, and the height is 5 cm. How can you find the area of the trapezoid?

 Add (6+8)= 14. Then multiply by 5, and you will get 70 cm2 . Then divide by 2, and the result will be 35 cm2.
