# Area of trapezium calculator

Sure, here are the steps to find the area of a trapezium using a calculator:

- Measure the lengths of the two parallel sides of the trapezium. Let’s call them “a” and “b”.
- Measure the height of the trapezium. Let’s call it “h”.
- Use the following formula to calculate the area of the trapezium:
**Area = (a + b) x h / 2** - Input the values of a, b, and h into the calculator.
- Add the values of a and b together.
- Multiply the sum by h.
- Divide the result by 2.
- The final result will be the area of the trapezium in square units.

Here’s an example: if side “a” is 5 cm, side “b” is 9 cm, and the height “h” is 4 cm, the formula would be:

**Area = (5 cm + 9 cm) x 4 cm / 2**

Using a calculator, we get:

Area = 14 cm x 4 cm / 2 Area = 28 square cm

So the area of the trapezium is 28 square cm.
