# What is the area of a trapezoid with a height of 5 m and bases of 8 m and 1 m?

**Solution:**

A trapezoid is a flat closed shape quadrilateral in which one pair of opposite sides are parallel.

Given,

height = 5m

base one (b_{1}) = 8m

base two (b_{2}) = 1m

We know that the area of trapezoid = (1/2) × (Sum of parallel sides) × (perpendicular distance between the parallel sides).

Area = (1/2) × (8 + 1) × 5 m = 22.5 m^{2}

Thus, the area of a trapezoid with a height of 5 m and bases of 8 m and 1 m is 22.5 m^{2}.

## What is the area of a trapezoid with a height of 5 m and bases of 8 m and 1 m?

**Summary:**

The area of a trapezoid with a height of 5 m and bases of 8 m and 1 m is 22.5 m^{2}.
