### Geometry4.11 Area of a Trapezoid - I

 Example: The length of the parallel sides of a trapezoid are 10 cm and 7 cm. The distance between this is 4 cm. Find its area. Solution: Given that, a = 10 cm, b = 7 cm and h = 5 cm. The equation for the area of trapezoid is (A) = 1/2 * (a+b)*h. = 1/2 * (10+7)*4 = 1/2 * 17 * 4 = 17 * 2 = 34 sq cm. Directions: Read the above example carefully and answer the following questions. Draw 10 trapezoid with different lengths and label its sides. Also measure the distance between the parallel sides.
