Hi Hemana,

I see your assignment was due immediately so I hope this helps:

The area of a trapezoid is A = ((a+b)/2)x(h). a = 1st base, b = 2nd base, h = height.

I'm not sure which numbers would be the bases or the height without the picture, but for example, if 24ft and 64ft were the 2 bases and 15ft was the height, it would look like: A = ((24 + 64))/2)x(15).

Following order of operations, you would add 24 + 64, which equals 88 and then divide by 2 = 44. You'd then multiply 44 x 15, which comes to 660. So A = 660 ft.
