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

Thank you, I understood your first post. Good luck Will.
