Separate the trapezoid into $3$ separate figures, including two right triangles and one rectangle.

Solve for $a$ and $h$.

$\sin(65º)=\frac{h}{8}$ and $\cos(65º)=\frac{a}{8}$

Solve for $d$ and $e$.

Refer to the Math Notes box in Lesson 5.1.2 if you need help selecting which trigonometric ratio to use when solving for $d$ and $e$.

$\text{Area}\approx100.55\text{ yds}^2$
$\text{Perimeter}\approx43.36$ yds
