the trapezoid has equal nonparallel sides the upper base is 6. the lower base is 16. and the diagonal is 12. what is the attitude of the trapezoid?

• GEOMETRY -

draw the figure. Draw the diagonol. Notice that 5 is the overlap on each end of the base from the upper base downward. Now look at the right triangle 12-11-h (the 11 is 16-5).

12^2=11^2+h^2 solve for h.
