# 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.

## 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:

**Then change the following variables with your values:**

**sa** shall be changed with the *Side a* of your trapezoid. As an example **sa** could be changed to 10.**sb** shall be changed with the *Side b* of your trapezoid. As an example **sb** could be changed to 10.**h** shall be changed with the *Height* of your trapezoid. As an example **h** could be changed to 10.

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