# Find the Area trapezoid (19in)(12.6)(14.5)

b1=19inb2=12.6h=14.5
The area of a trapezoid is equal to 12 times the height times the sum of the bases b1+b2.
12⋅(height)⋅(b1+b2)
Substitute the values of the height h=14.5 and bases (b1=19 and b2=12.6) into the formula for the area of a trapezoid.
12⋅14.5⋅(19+12.6)
Combine 12 and 14.5.
14.52⋅(19+12.6)
Simplify the expression.
Divide 14.5 by 2.
7.25⋅(19+12.6)
