#### Trapezoid area equation

## What is the formula for finding area of a trapezoid?

To find the area of a trapezoid, multiply the sum of the bases (the parallel sides) by the height (the perpendicular distance between the bases), and then divide by 2.

## What is the formula for a trapezoid volume?

Formula for Volume of a Trapezoidal Prism. If the prism length is L,trapezoid base width B, trapezoid top width A, and trapezoid height H, then the volume of the prism is given by the four-variable formula: V(L, B, A, H) = LH(A + B)/2. In other words, multiply together the length, height, and average of A and B.

## How do you find the missing side of a trapezoid?

Solve for H. To do this, multiply each side by H, then divide each side by the angle sine. Or, you can simply divide the height of the triangle by the angle sine. So, the length of the hypotenuse, and the first missing side of the trapezoid, is about 10.4566 cm.

## What is area formula?

Area is measured in “square” units. Area of a square = side times side. Since each side of a square is the same, it can simply be the length of one side squared. If a square has one side of 4 inches, the area would be 4 inches times 4 inches, or 16 square inches.

## Why is the area of a trapezoid 1 2h b1 b2?

The two parallel sides of a trapezoid are its bases. If we call the longer side b1 and the shorter side b2, then the base of the parallelogram is b1 + b2. Area of a trapezoid = 1 2 (base 1 + base 2)(height). A = 1 2 h(b1 + b2) The area of a trapezoid is half its height multiplied by the sum of its two bases.

## What does trapezoid mean?

1a : a quadrilateral having only two sides parallel. b British : trapezium sense 1a. 2 : a bone in the wrist at the base of the metacarpal of the index finger.

## What is a 3d trapezoid called?

There is no generalized name for this one. You can call trapezoidal prism, trapezohedron, hexahedron, truncated pyramid, frustum etc.

## What is the volume formula?

Perimeter, Area, and Volume

Table 3. Volume Formulas | ||

Shape | Formula | Variables |

Cube | V=s3 | s is the length of the side. |

Right Rectangular Prism | V=LWH | L is the length, W is the width and H is the height. |

Prism or Cylinder | V=Ah | A is the area of the base, h is the height. |

## How do you find the missing side lengths?

Given that the hypotenuse of a right triangle is and one side is , find the other side length. Explanation: To find the length of the missing side, you can either use the pythagorean theorm or realize this is a case of a special right triangle with sides . Thus, the other side length is .

## What is SI unit of area?

unit of area is square metre or meter square which in short form is written as m2.

## What is the perimeter formula?

The formula for the perimeter of a rectangle is often written as P = 2l + 2w, where l is the length of the rectangle and w is the width of the rectangle. The area of a two-dimensional figure describes the amount of surface the shape covers.
