What is the area of the trapezoid? If necessary, round your answer to the nearest tenth. A trapezoid with bottom side length of 8.5 feet, top side length of 5.5 feet, and height of 6.5 feet. 35.8 feet squared 45.5 feet squared 46.8 feet squared 55.3 feet squared
45.5 sq. feet
Area of trapezoid is given by 1/2(sum of parallel sides) * height of trapezoid.
In the problem
Parallel sides are bottom and top sides with length of 8.5 feet and 5.5 feet
Thus sum of Parallel sides = 8.5 feet + 5.5 feet = 14 feet
Height = 6.5 feet.
area of trapezoid = 1/2*(14)* 6.5 feet = 7*6.5 feet = 45.5 sq. feet
yes it represnts a functio, their are not 2 of the same numbers on the both sides
