## Area of trapezium

To calculate the area of a trapezium, divide it into a rectangle and two triangles. A trapezium is a quadrilateral that has only one pair of parallel sides.

The area of the trapezium is given by the following formula where a and b are the lengths of the parallel sides and h is the perpendicular distance between the parallel sides.

## $$\frac{1}{2}(a+b)*h$$

Area of trapezium (A) = Where “a” and “b” are the length of parallel sides and “h” is the perpendicular distance between “a” and “b” .
