how do i find the area of trapezoids and triangles

  • math/formula 1 - ,

    multiply base times height

  • math/formula 1 - ,

    Area of a triangle:
    Area=(base * height)/2

    Area of a trapezoid:
    Area=height * (b1 + b2)/2
    where:
    b1=length of top side
    b2=length of bottom side

  • math/formula 1 - ,

    Quiddithch is correct. The trapezoid's height is the distance between the two parallel sides, b1 and b2. For a triangle, you can choose any side for the base, but must measure the height from that chosen base when using the formula.
