Trapezium/Trapezoid Tutorial

Trapezium Definition:

A trapezium is a shape with four sides, that has one set of parallel sides.

Trapezium/Trapezoid Formula :

Area of Trapezium = ½×(a + b)×h
where
a, b = sides, h = height Perimeter of Trapezium = a + b + c + d
where
a, b, c, d = sides

Trapezium/Trapezoid Example :

Case 1: Find the area of a trapezium using the sides length as 3, 4 and the height 2.

Step 1:

Find the area. Area = ½ * (a + b) * h         = ½ * (3 + 4) * 2         = ½ * 7 * 2 = 7. Case 2: Find the perimeter of a trapezium using the sides length as 3, 4, 5, 6.

Step 1:

Find the perimeter. Perimeter = a + b + c + d                = 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 = 18. The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the Area and Perimeter of a Trapezium manually.
