# In trapezoid ABCD, A B = 7 ft and D C = 13 ft. If the area of trapezoid ABCD is 60 ft2, find the length of altitude A E ¯ .                                   _ To determine

To find:

The length of the altitude AE¯ of the trapezoid ABCD.

Explanation

Given:

In trapezoid ABCD, AB=7 ft and DC=13 ft., and the area of trapezoid ABCD is 60 ft2, find the length of altitude AE¯.

Theorem:

The area A of a trapezoid whose bases have lengths b1 and b2 and whose altitude has length h is given by A=12h(b1+b2).

From the given, in trapezoid ABCD, AB=7 ft., and DC=13 ft., and area of ABCD is 60 ft2.

Let b1=7 ft
