If the lengths of two bases of a trapezoid are 10m and 16m respectively, then what is the length of the median

Math 
helper,
The median of a trapezoid is parallel to its bases, and its length is equal to onehalf of the sum of their lengths.
m = 1/2 ( b + b' )
can you solve this now?
post back if you need more help 
Math 
will,
I am confused, do I separate the two first?

Math 
helper,
b = 10m, b' = 16m
m = 1/2 ( b + b' )
m = 1/2 (10 + 16)
m = 1/2 (26)
m = 13

mike,
Thank you, I understood your first post. Good luck Will.

Math 
helper,
you're welcome

Jett,
If Trapezoid JUNE has bases of length 12 and 30, what is the length of its median segment?
