Hello, I'm having trouble doing this math geometry someone help me please? Thanks: Calculate the area of the trapezoid which is not drawn to scale. It is not a regular trapezoid! It looks like a rectangle and when you get to the top cut the rectangle and make the part you cut look like a slanted triangle. Its base is 5in its bottom is 4in its left side is 8in and its right side is 11 in. Please don't have too much time too finish!
