hi, i need to find the area of this shape:
im not really sure what to do for this but could i do, 7x11=77 77/6=12.8??

The area of a trapezium is given by where a and b are the parallel sidesh is the perpendicular height
In this question a = 11, b = 7 and h = 6
I get an area of 54
i don't understand! i understand 11+7=77/2=35.8 but how do i use the 6?
11+7 = 18 not 77!
in the formula above h is the perpendicular height and in your diagram 6 is the perpendicular height
oh sorry, misread it, though it said 11 x7
thanks alot i understand now.
