## Trapezium calculator

Trapezium calculator calculates the area and perimeter of a trapezium by taking the values of sides and the distance between them.

## What is trapezium?

A quadrilateral is a shape with four sides and one set of parallel sides, and a trapezium is one of these shapes.

• Area of trapezium = a+b /2*(h)
• Perimeter of trapezium = (a + b) + (c + d)

## How to calculate the area and perimeter of the trapezium?

In this section with the help of examples, the tool will be explained.

Example 1

Determine the area of trapezium if a = 12, b = 15, and height = 16

Solution

Given values

a = 12, b = 15, h = 16

Area =?

Formula:

Area = a+b /2*(h)

Put the values in the formula

Area = (12 + 15)/2*(16)

Area = 27/2*(16)

Area of trapezium = 216

Example 2

Find the perimeter of trapezium if a = 10, b = 12, c = 17, and d = 22

Solution

Given values

a = 10, b = 12, c = 17, d = 22

Perimeter =?

Formula:

Perimeter = (a + b) + (c + d)

Perimeter = (10 + 12) + (17 + 22)

Perimeter = 22 + 39

Area of trapezium = 61.000000
