What is the number of square units in the area of trapezoid ABCD with vertices A(0,0), B(0,-2), C(4,0), and D(4,6)?

The area of a trapezoid can be computed as : A = ((b + B) * h ) ÷ 2

 b= base

B= area of base

A=area

h=height                                                                           

 

If you place the vertices of the trapezoid, you'll notice that b=2, B=6 and h=4.  So it would be

 

((2+6) * 4) ÷ 2 =16

 

The answer is 16
