# Finding the Area of a Trapezoid Series

This is the summary of series on how to find the area of a trapezoid. A trapezoid is a quadrilateral ( a figure with four sides), whose two sides are parallel. This series is divided into three parts.

**How to Find the Area of a Trapezoid Part 1** discusses the derivation of the formula. The derivation uses the two trapezoids to form a parallelogram and since the formula for finding the area of a parallelogram has been discussed, it can be used for computation. In this post, an example was also shown on how to find the area of a trapezoid.

**How to Find the Area of a Trapezoid Part 2** discusses two examples. The first one is how to find the area given the base and height. The second example is how to look for the height given the base and the area.

**How to Find the Area of a Trapezoid Part 3 **discusses how to find the base given the height and the area.

That’s it for this post, we will have exercises and quizzes in the next few days.

Good luck!
