**Henry**, Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 8:11pmFirst, we draw the trapezoid with the long base on the bottom. Using dotted lines, we draw 2 altitudes forming 2

congruent rt. triangles and a rectangle.

AE=ED = (AD-BC) / 2 = (12-10)/2 = 1in =

hor. sides of rt. triangles.

AB = CD = sqrt(1^2+4^2) = sqrt17 =

4.1in. = Length of non-parallel sides.

P = 4.1 + 10 + 4.1 + 12 = 30.2in.
