# Lesson Worksheet: Area of a Trapezoid Mathematics • 6th Grade

In this worksheet, we will practice finding the area of a trapezoid using a formula and applying it in finding the area in real life.

**Q3: **

Arkansas has a shape that is similar to a trapezoid with bases of about 182 miles and 267 miles and a height of about 254 miles. Estimate the area of Arkansas.

- A58,206 mi
^{2} - B28,511 mi
^{2} - C57,023 mi
^{2} - D47,411 mi
^{2} - E46,228 mi
^{2}

**Q5: **

Work out the area of the shape.

**Q6: **

Find, to the nearest integer, the area of this composite shape.

**Q7: **

A right trapezoid is partitioned into 4 triangles by its diagonals as shown.

Which triangle has the larger area, the red one or the blue one?

- AThe red one
- BThe blue one
- CBoth are equal.
- DThere is not enough information to answer the question.

**Q8: **

In the trapezoid shown, which line segment represents the trapezoidβs height?

- A
- B
- C
- D
- E

**Q9: **

The area of the trapezoid shown is 28 cm^{2}. Calculate its height.

**Q10: **

The parallel
sides of a trapezoid are 6 mm
and 12 mm long.
Its area is 45 mm^{2}.
Determine the height of the trapezoid.
