The area of a trapezoid is $80$. The length of one base is $16$ units greater than the other base, and one base of the trapezoid is $12$. Find the length of the median of the trapezoid.

                   Baseupper + Baselower   

Median  =  ––––––––––––––––––––   

                                 2    

 

                   12 + (12 + 16)          12 + 28   

Median  =  ––––––––––––––  =  ––––––––   

                               2                         2   

 

Median  =  20   

 

The length of the median of a trapezoid is    

the average of the lengths of the two bases.    

The area has nothing to do with this problem.
