## How to Find Perimeter of a Trapezoid?

**The perimeter of a trapezoid****:** It is defined as the total length or distance of its boundary on all sides. The formula to calculate the perimeter of a trapezoid is:

**Perimeter of a trapezoid**** = a + b + c + d unit(s)**

Where a, b, c, and d are lengths of the sides of the trapezoid.

**Solved Example:**

Find the perimeter of a trapezoid if the length of the sides a = 5 units, b = 6 units, c = 7 units, and d = 8 units

**Solution:**

Given: a = 5 units, b = 6 units, c = 7 units, and d = 8 units

Perimeter of a trapezoid = a + b + c + d

= 5 + 6 + 7 + 8

= 26 units

Similarly, you can use the calculator to find the perimeter of a trapezoid for:

- a = 2 units, b = 4 units, c = 6 units, and d = 8 units
- a = 4 units, b = 8 units, c = 3 units, and d = 11 units
