Example 8
Find the area of the trapezoid ABCD.
Solution:
Area of the trapezoid ABCD =
= 12 cm^{2}
Example 9
Find the circumference of a circle with area 25 p sq. ft.
Solution:
Area of the circle = p r^{2} = 25 p
\ r = 5 ft.
\ circumference = 2 pr
= 10 p
Example 10
Find the area of a circle with circumference 30p cm.
Solution:
Circumference = 2 p r = 30 p
r = 15 cm
area = p r^{2}
= p ´ 15^{2}
= 225 p
