## What is the formula for the median of a trapezoid?

The median is a straight line parallel to the bases, stretching from the midpoint of one leg to the midpoint of the other. The length of the median is the average of the two bases, so you can find it with the formula: ((length of one base) + (length of the other base)) / 2.

**What is the formula for finding area of a trapezoid?**

To find the area of a trapezoid, multiply the sum of the bases (the parallel sides) by the height (the perpendicular distance between the bases), and then divide by 2.

### Which of the following formula is used to find out median?

Calculate Median using following Formula M = L + ( \frac{n}{2} – cf ) \frac{h}{f}

**How do you solve a trapezoid problem?**

#### How do you calculate the median of a trapezoid?

The median of the trapezoid m connects the midpoints of the two non-parallel sides c and d where m = (a+b)÷2. The area of the trapezoid S can be expressed via median (m) and altitude (h) as follows: S = m×h = (a+b)÷2×h.

**What is the equation for a trapezoid?**

How to Find the Height of a Trapezoid. Set up the equation for the area of a trapezoid. Write A=h(b1+b2)/2, where A represents the trapezoid’s area, b1 represents one of the base lengths, b2 represents the other base length and h represents the height. Rearrange the equation to get h alone. Multiply both sides of the equation by 2 to get.

## How do you calculate the square footage of a trapezoid?

In this case you need the top edge, bottom edge, left side, right side. The formula for a trapezoid is: Square footage Trapezoid= Height* (top edge + bottom edge)/2.

**How do you calculate the volume of a trapezoid?**

A trapezoid is a two dimensional figure. So you can find the AREA of a trapezoid with the formula A=(1/2)h x (b1+b2) where h is the height and b1 and b2 are the lengths of the parallel sides. Two dimensional figures do not have volume.
