#### Storyboard Text

• Oh no, hopefully I know how to help, I don't want to give the wrong answer...
• Hey, do you think you can help me with my math homework, I keep getting the wrong answer and don't understand it?
• Sure I can try to help, what are you learning about?
• So basically we're learning about volume and surface area of different shapes. Along with area and perimeter of other shapes that can be confusing like for a trapezoid.
• Great! I got a A on my last test on that unit. Let me help you out with a problem. Just use the formula on the sheet and try to plug it in to solve.
• Okay let me try... I ended up getting 38 units, is it right?
• Lets try this first problem to find the area of a trapezoid. Use this formula here. There are two bases so you have to keep that in mind.
• Why do I keep getting the answers wrong. I'm using the correct formula!!
• Hmm, that isn't correct. I know what you're doing wrong. This is probably why you have been struggling with getting the correct answers.
• You forgot to multiply by 1/2 which gives you the wrong answer everytime. It is a little step that makes a big difference!  The rest of your math is correct, so the answer would just be half of 38!
• Wow I totally forgot to do that! Thank you now I won't be struggling with this anymore!
