It would help to draw a figure. A perpendicular to the diameter bisecting the smaller parallel side will divide it into two sections 8 inches long. A line from the diameter to the parallel side will have length sqrt[(17)^2 - (8)^2] = 15 inches. That is the height of the trapezoid.

The area is (1/2)(8 + 17)*15 = 187.5 in^2.
