## How do you solve a trapezoid problem?

Explanation: To find the area of a trapezoid, multiply the sum of the bases (the parallel sides) by the height (the perpendicular distance between the bases), and then divide by 2.

## How do you solve the ABCD of a trapezoid?

ABCD is a trapezoid and the its bases AB and DC are parallel. Since AB and DC are parallel the triangles AOB and DOC are similar hence the proportinality of the corresponding sides. Use equation OA / OD = 3 / 4 and solve for OA. Use equation OB / OC = 3 / 4 and solve for OA.

**What are the legs of trapezoid ABCD?**

In trapezoid ABCD, BC?? AD. The parallel sides BC and AD are called the bases, and the nonparallel sides AB and CD are legs.

### What is the formula for finding area of a trapezoid?

Add the bases.

### How to find the area of a trapezoid?

Add together the lengths of the bases. The bases are the 2 sides of the trapezoid that are parallel with one another.

**How do you find the area of an irregular trapezoid?**

Break the trapezoid into 1 rectangle and 2 right triangles.
