Perimeter of LMNO = a + b1 + a1 + b

      Figure 4.5

If a trapezoid MNPQ which is congruent to LMNO is drawn on seg.MN a parallelogram LQPO is obtained ( figure 4.6).


Figure 4.6

Area of a parallelogram LQPO = 2 Area of trapezoid LMNO

( a + a1 ) h = 2 Area of trapezoid LMNO

\ Area of trapezoid LMNO =

Area of a trapezoid is half the product of the sum of its bases with its altitude.
