5-93.

Graph the trapezoid *A*(6, 5), *B*(8, −2), *C*(−4, −2), *D*(−2, 5). Homework Help ✎

Your graph should look like the one below.

Find the length of the bottom base (segment

*CB*). Then find the length of the top base (segment*AD*). Use grid units.

Both

*B*and*C*are on the*y*= −2 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*.

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*CB*and segment*AD*.
