# 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)×hwhere         a, b = sides, h = heightPerimeter of Trapezium = a + b + c + dwhere         a, b, c, d = sides Trapezium Image/Diagram 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.
