# Find Area of Trapezoid

Enter the base and heignt:

Calculator to find the area of a trapezoid, take the sum of its both given bases, multiply the sum by the given height of the trapezoid, and then divide the result by 2.

The **formula** to find Area of Trapezoid as follows:

**Area = height (base1 + base2)/2**

## Area & parimeter of Trapezium

## Properties of Trapezium

1. Diagonals intersect each other.

2. The sum of the internal angles is 360°.

3. The two angles are supplementary to each other and their sum is equal to 180°.

4. Exactly one pair of opposite sides are parallel, other than isosceles trapezium, trapezium has non-parallel sides unequal.

5. The line that joins the mid-point of the non-parallel sides is always parallel to the bases of the trapezium.

6. Mid-segment = (AB + CD)/2

7. Trapezium are of three types as : Scalene Trapezium, Isosceles Trapezium and Right Trapezium.
