Formulas:
A = Area a = middle base segment b = left base segment c = right base segment h = smaller height H = greater height | |
A = | (((H + h) * a) + (b * h) + (c * H)) / 2 |
Note: In England, this figure is called a trapezoid. A trapezium can also be divided into two triangles as indicated by the dotted line. The area of each of these triangles is computed, and the results added to find the area of the trapezium. |
