# Calculator for Trapezoid Area

This calculator will help you find the area of a trapezoid. The formula used in this calculator is listed below.

To use this calculator, you will need to know the side a, side b and height.

Area = 100.0

## Trapezoid Area Formula

Formula variable explanation:

• T represents the area.
• sa represents the Side a.
• sb represents the Side b.
• h represents the Height.

### LaTeX formula

If you are working in a TeX based editor you could use this TeX formula to calculate the trapezoid area.

\mathrm{T}=\frac{1}{2}\cdot\left( sa+ sb\right)\cdot\mathrm{h}

## How To Calculate The Trapezoid Area Your Self

Calculating the area is rather simple when you know the formula presented above. Follow these steps:

1. Write down this formula:

2. Then change the following variables with your values:
1. sa shall be changed with the Side a of your trapezoid. As an example sa could be changed to 10.
2. sb shall be changed with the Side b of your trapezoid. As an example sb could be changed to 10.
3. h shall be changed with the Height of your trapezoid. As an example h could be changed to 10.
