The bases

The bases of the isosceles trapezoid ABCD have 10 cm and 6 cm lengths. Its arms form an angle α = 50˚ with a longer base. Calculate the circumference and area of the ABCD trapezoid.

Correct answer:

o =  22.2229 cm
S =  19.0681 cm2

Step-by-step explanation:

a=10 cm c=6 cm α=50   x=(ac)/2=(106)/2=2 cm  cosα=x:r  r=x/cos(α)=2/cos(50°)=3.11145 cm  o=a+c+2 r=10+6+2 3.1114=22.2229 cm
tanα=h:x  h=x tan(α)=2 tan(50°)=2.38351 cm  S=2a+c h=210+6 2.3835=19.0681 cm2
