# Height of Trapezium Calculator

A trapezoid is a 4-sided flat shape with straight sides. The parallel sides are called the bases of the trapezoid and the other two sides are called the legs or the lateral sides. Altitude or height is an extent or distance upward. Online Height of Trapezium Calculator used to find the trapezoid altitude with Area and length of the bases.

#### Formula:

Height of Trapezium = 2A / (b1 + b2)
**Where,**
A = Area
b1 = Top Base Length
b2 = Bottom Base Length

#### Example

** A trapezium has an area of 20 cm**^{2} and has the base lengths of 7 cm and 5 cm.

Trapezoid altitude = 2 x 20 / (7 + 5)

=40/12

= 3.33 cm.
