So basically, this is what I did to get sqrt 40..

 

I added a line to creat right triangle with base 3 and hypotnuse 4

 

\(3^2+b^2=7^2\)

 

9+b^2=49

49-9=b

 

answer would be \(\sqrt{40} \)

But somehow its wrong so idk :(

someone help! :(

 

thnx!

The missing side is definitely: sqrt(40) = 6.325 - which gives an area of trapezoid as: 41.11

 

The two missing angles are: 64.62  and  115.38

 

Sum of the 4 angles = 90 + 90 + 64.62 + 115.38 = 360 degrees.

 

Perimeter ==5 + 7 + 8 + 6.325 = 26.325

The missing length is sqrt(42).
