Determine the area and perimeter of the trapezoid at right. Homework Help ✎

Recall the formula to find the area of a trapezoid. Try separating the trapezoid
into various shapes when finding missing side lengths.

$A\ =\ \frac{1}{2}\left(b_1\ +\ b_2\right)h$

$A\ =\ 26\ sq.\ m,\ P\ =\ 13\ +\ \sqrt{20}+\sqrt{17}\ \approx 21.6\ m$
