  • Hi. Im Mathadic 
  • My math teacher Mr.Hinote told me to figure out the area of a parking lot that is shaped like a trapezoid.
  • This parking lot's dimensions are (h 22), (b1 15), (b2 8). So the Area would be 506
  • Wow who are you? 
  • I'm Mathuranious and I'm here to help you because you did your math problem wrong.
  • Well what did I do wrong
  • When you are finding the area of a trapezoid the formula is area=1/2 x h(b1+b2). You forgot to multiply by 1/2. You should of gotten 253.
  • You're welcome. It is a very common error for someone to forget to multiply by half. 
  • Thank you for your help Mathuraniuos. I'll never make that mistake again because of your help.
