In Exercises 1 to 8, find the perimeter of each polygon. To determine

To Find:

Perimeter of the trapezium provided.

Explanation

Formula Used:

The perimeter of a polygon is the sum of the lengths of all sides of the polygon.

Pythagorean theorem for the right angle triangle ABC for the hypotenuse AC,

AC2=AB2+BC2.

Calculation:

It is given that the trapezium ABCD with AB-DC-.

Therefore, the given trapezium is an isosceles trapezium.

Let us draw another altitude from the point D to the base BC.

And let the altitudes touches the base BC at the points E and F.
