For Exercises 48 and 49, use the formula found in Exercise 47.Find the area of a trapezoid with an altitude of length 5 1 3 f t and a median of length 2 1 4 f t .

To determine

To Find:

The area of a trapezoid provided its altitude and median.

Explanation

Formula Used:

Area of a trapezoid whose altitude has length h and whose median has length m is A=hm.

Calculation:

It is given that altitude and median of the trapezoid are 513 ft and 214 ft.

That is, h=513=163 ft, and m=214=94ft
