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.
  3. Now you can enter this in to your calculator and you will get your answer.
