Homework Help: Math

Posted by Tony on Friday, March 23, 2007 at 12:57am.

Rose's garden is in the shape of a trapezoid. If the height of the trapezoid is 16m, one base is 20m and the area is 224m2, what is the length of the other base?

The area of a trapezoid is:
A= (1/2) h (b1 + b2)
...where h = height and b1, b2 are the bases.

Substitute what you know to solve for the unknown.

224 = (1/2)(16)(20 + x)

Hopefully, you can solve for x, which will be the other base.
