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.
