We may take a=12; b=20; c=1 and d=13
The solution of height formula is height=12
If we put the known units a, c and h into Area formula,
the area of the trapezoid ABCD is [(12+1)/2].12 = 13.16 = 78

Suppose ABCD is an isosceles trapezoid with bases AB and CD and sides AD and BC such that |CD| > |AB|. Also suppose that |CD| = |AC| and that the altitude of the trapezoid is equal to |AB|

If |AB|/|CD| = a/b where a and b are positive coprime integers, then find a^b?

In the figure shown we have a right trapezoid that was divided into two rectangles with areas of 56 and 14, and a smaller trapezoid with area of 9. What is the area of the blue triangle?
