SELECT THE CORRECT ANSWER IN EACH OF THE FOLLOWING:

1. The parallel sides of a trapezium measure 14cm and 18cm and the distance between them is 9 cm. The area of the trapezium is
96 cm2
144 cm2
189 cm2
207 cm2

Solution: We know that the given details are:

Length of the parallel sides are 14cm and 18cm

Height (h) = 9cm

By using the formula,

Area of trapezium = ½ × (sum of parallel sides) × height

= ½ × (14+18) × 9

=144cm2

2. The lengths of the parallel sides of a trapezium are 19cm and 13cm and the area is 128cm2. The distance between the parallel sides is
9cm
7cm
8cm
12.5cm

Solution: we know that the length of the parallel sides is 19cm and 13cm

Let us consider Height (h) = x cm

Area of trapezium = 128cm2

By using the formula Area of trapezium = ½ × (sum of parallel sides) × height

128 = ½ × (19+13) × x

128 = ½ × 32 × x

128 = 16x

x = 128/16

x= 8

∴ The distance between the parallel lines is 8cm.
