what is te best numbers for the base of a trapezoid that has a aarea of 4 square units and a height of 1

Area = ((b1 + b2)/2)* h
4 = ((b1 + b2)/2)* 1
4 = ((b1 + b2)/2)
Multiply both sides by 2
8 = b1 + b2

So, the sum of base1 and base2 = 8

I don't know what you mean by 'best numbers'?

i need help!!!!!!!!
A=44 in.2, b1=13 in., b2=9 in.,h=?
