We have ourselves here a trapezoid. The area of a trapezoid is h(base1 + base2) / 2.

Plugging in the values we see the area is 6(12 + 15)/2 = 3(12 + 15) = 3(27) = 81.

Thus, the area of the trapezoid is 81 units squared.

ok the area of a trapezoid = $$\frac{(base(1)+base(2))\times(height)}{2}$$

so $$\frac{(12+15)\times 6}{2}$$=$$27\times3=81$$

so 81

You said it XxmathguyxX.

Remember Guest, the formula for the area of a trapezoid is the combined bases x the height x 0.5.
