 Zack's Blogmetry This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

Ch 7 Review Question Ch 7 is on areas of polygons. I will be walking you through how to find the area of a trapezoid. To find the area of a trapezoid, the formula is Area=1/2(height)(base1+base2). So you will need to find the height and the length of both bases. So if one base was 6cm, the other 8cm, and the height 4cm, you would set up your equation like this: Area=1/2(4cm)(6cm+8cm)-->Area=2cm(14cm)-->Area=28cm squared. That is your answer.

Stay classy bloggers.
