Graph the trapezoid .

Your graph should look like the one below.

Graph of a trapezoid centered at the point (2, comma 1.5), with equal non parallel sides.

  1. Find the length of the bottom base (segment ). Then find the length of the top base (segment ). Use grid units.

  • Both and are on the line, so you just need to find the the distance between their x-coordinates to determine the length of CB. The same can be done for AD.

  1. Find the distance between the two bases, which is called the height. Use grid units.

  • Use a similar method to part (a), but use the y-coordinates to find the distance between segment and segment .
