How do you solve these types of math problems.

Directions: Solve each literal equation for the indicated variable.

A=1/2h(B+b) (For b) Area of a trapezoid

It is just a matter of algebraic manipulation.

A=(1/2)h(B+b)
Multiply both sides of the equation by 2/h.
B+b = 2A/h
b = (2A/h) - B

The formula

)
A=12h(b1+b2) gives the area,
