## Trapezoid

In order to find the Area of a Trapezoid, the first step to finding the area is to add both the bases together, with the area you must multiply it by the height. The height being the highest point or altitude of the trapezoid. After completing the first two steps in this formula which involves adding and multiplying, divide the solution by 2 or multiply by 1/2, other wise known as .5 in decimals. Keep in mind that the area must always be written in units squared.
