Q:
# Find the length of the second base of a trapezoid with one base measuring 29ft, a height of 9ft, and an area of 193.5 ft square

Accepted Solution

A:

By definition, the area of the trapezoid is given by:

A = (1/2) * (B + b) * (h)

Where,

B: base number 1

b: base number 2

h: height

Clearing b we have:

b = (2 / h) * (A) - B

Substituting values:

b = (2/9) * (193.5) - 29

b = 14 feet

Answer:

the length of the second base is:

b = 14 feet

A = (1/2) * (B + b) * (h)

Where,

B: base number 1

b: base number 2

h: height

Clearing b we have:

b = (2 / h) * (A) - B

Substituting values:

b = (2/9) * (193.5) - 29

b = 14 feet

Answer:

the length of the second base is:

b = 14 feet
