## How do you find the area of a rectangle with a trapezoid?

To find the area of a trapezoid, multiply the sum of the bases (the parallel sides) by the height (the perpendicular distance between the bases), and then divide by 2.

## What is the formula for area of an isosceles trapezoid?

The formula to calculate the area of an isosceles trapezoid is Area = (sum of parallel sides ÷ 2) × height.

**Is a rectangle an isosceles trapezoid?**

Rectangles are a special type of isosceles trapezoid with opposite sides parallel and equal angles.

### Can a trapezoid be a rectangle?

A trapezoid can be a rectangle if both pairs of its opposite sides are parallel; its opposite sides are of equal length and are at right angles to each other.

### Is a trapezoid always a rectangle?

The definition of a trapezoid is that it is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. Rectangles and squares have two pairs of parallel lines. Using the idea of exactly one pair of parallel sides, the trapezoid cannot be a square or rectangle.

**How do you find the height of an isosceles trapezoid?**

Since the legs (non-parallel sides) of the trapezoid are equal, then the height of the trapezoid can be calculated as follows; To get the two triangles’ base, subtract 15 cm from 27 cm and divide by 2. 122 = h2 + 62By Pythagorean theorem, the height (h) is calculated as; 144 = h2 + 36.

#### How to calculate the area of a trapezoid?

Calculate the remaining internal angles. As α+β = 180°,β = 180° – 30 ° = 150°.

#### How to find the missing side length of a trapezoid?

Isosceles Trapezoid. If the legs or non-parallel sides of the trapezoid are equal in length,then it is called an isosceles trapezoid.

**What is the formula for area of an isosceles triangle?**

Using base and Height: Area = ½ × b × h

## What are facts about isosceles trapezoid?

Definition of Trapezoid. A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with only one pair of parallel sides.
