 Question 375422: Hi I asked for help before on this question and no one responded. I know its because its confusing. The problem is a trapazoid. The question is find volume in cubic feet. Here's my problem. The diagram only has one base(lower base) 25 feet. The shorter side is 9 feet and the longer side is 16 feet. and I think the three dimensional side to the right of the diagram is considered the depth? this is 18 feet. I know the formula for a trapezoid A=1/2 h (a+b)= but I'm not sure if I did 1/2 . 16.(25 + 9 ) 1/2 . 16 .( 34 ) 1/2. 544 = 270 is correct. Do you multiply that by 18 or is the whole problem WRONG because I"m not using a upperbase because I don't know what the upperbase is??? In the problem she gave us there are only four sets of numbers. 9 feet side, 16 feet side 25 feet base and 18 feet depth. It does not have a number for the upperbase. So I'm totally lost. Can anyone help please???? Thank You ever so much. Janet Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6287)
