If the lengths of two bases of a trapezoid are 10m and 16m respectively, then what is the length of the median

  • Math -

    The median of a trapezoid is parallel to its bases, and its length is equal to one-half of the sum of their lengths.
    m = 1/2 ( b + b' )

    can you solve this now?
    post back if you need more help

    I am confused, do I separate the two first?

  • Math -

    b = 10m, b' = 16m

    m = 1/2 ( b + b' )
    m = 1/2 (10 + 16)
    m = 1/2 (26)
    m = 13
