Q:
# What is the area of the trapezoid? the diagram is not drawn to scale

Accepted Solution

A:

Formula for area of a trapezium :

[tex]\boxed { \boxed {\text {Area of a trapezium = } \dfrac{1}{2} (a + b) h}}[/tex]

Base length = 5 + 7 + 5 = 17

[tex]\text {Area of a trapezium = } \dfrac{1}{2} (17 + 7) \times 5 = 60 \text { cm}^2[/tex]

[tex]\boxed {\boxed { \text {Answer : The Area is 60 cm}^2}}[/tex]

[tex]\boxed { \boxed {\text {Area of a trapezium = } \dfrac{1}{2} (a + b) h}}[/tex]

Base length = 5 + 7 + 5 = 17

[tex]\text {Area of a trapezium = } \dfrac{1}{2} (17 + 7) \times 5 = 60 \text { cm}^2[/tex]
