Hi! I'm sorry for down voting! I just want to point out an error. Base 1 is 6 units shorter than base 2. Therefore, if we are to assume the trapezoid is symmetrical, the two edges of base 2 that extend past base 1 are both 3 units. Our right triangles will have legs that are 10 units and 3 units. You can do the rest of the math from here using the Pythagorean Theorem. Kevin does a great job pointing out the steps. Thanks!
