Q-9 A field is in the shape of a trapezium whose parallel sides are 25 m and 10 m. The non-parallel sides are 14 m and 13 m. find the area of the field.


SBQP is the Required Trapezium


  • SBQP be the trapezium with parallel sides and the non-parallel sides


  • Draw
  • Draw , therefore QPSR is now a parallelogram

In ,

  • and
  • .
  • Therefore, semi perimeter of the

Therefore, by Herons formula, area of the

Area of the parallelogram

Therefore, area of the trapezium
