The equal sides of an isosceles trapezoid each measure 5, and its altitude measures 4. If the area of the trapezoid is 48, find the lengths of its bases.

    hah, I will guess 3,4,5 triangle at each end
    base = top + 6

    4(base + top)/2 = 48
    base + top = 24
    2 top + 6 = 24
    top = 9
    base = 15
