THe area of a trapezoid is 80 units. If its height is 8 units, find the length of its median?

  • Geometry -

    area of trapezoid
    = (sum of two parallel sides) x height / 2

    80 = (sum of two parallel sides)(8)/ 2
    20 = (sum of two parallel sides)

    but the median = (sum of two parallel sides)/2
    = 10
