If the area of a trapezoid is 209 square yards and the bases are 15 yards and 23 yards. What is the height of the trapezoid?

  • geometry -

    Area of trapezoid
    =(sum of bases)*height
    Here you have
    209 = (15+23)*height
    What would be the height?

  • geometry - correction -

    area is (sum of bases)/2 * height

    Thank you Steve.

    np. I've made plenty of typos/slips myself.
