1. ## Precalc Graphing/area trapazoid question

This is due in like 2 hours its my last problem and i have no idea :\

For any t>0, let A(t) be the area of the trapezoid bounded by the x-axis,
y-axis, the
line y=2x + 1 and the line x=t. Write a formula for A(t).

Hint: the area of a trapezoid is (1/2)*(sum of the lengths of the two parallel sides)*(the vertical distance between the sides)
