How to calculate the area of a Trapezium.
It’s very simple to calculate the area of a Trapezium, you just need to use the following formula.
A = 0.5 x (a + b) x h
A = The Area
a = The length of the top
b = The length of the base
h = The height
Lets try an example
You’ve been asked to calculate the area of a Trapezium, you measure the top and find it is 4 meters long, next you measure the base and find it is 10 meters long and finally you measure the height and find it is 5 meters. Find the area using the formula A =0.5 x (a + b) x hA =0.5 x (4m + 10m) x 5mA =0.5 x (14m) x 5mA = 7m x 5mA = 35m2 The answer is 35m2. Thirty five meters squared
