In the diagram, a trapezoid is shown with x=36 and y=56. Find the area of the trapezoid. It's an isosceles triangle with base angles of 60°.

I need the diagram or a description of what is labelled x and y.

assuming x and y are the bases, then since yx = 20, there is a right triangle on each end with base 10, height 10√3.
So, now you know the bases and the height. Plug and chug.
