Trapezoid - central median

The central median divides the trapezoid into two smaller trapezoids. Determines the ratio of their contents.

Result

p = (Correct answer is: (3a+c)/(a+3c)) Wrong answer

Solution:

S1=((a+c)/2+c)h/2 S2=((a+c)/2+a)h/2 p=S2:S1=((a+c)/2+a)/((a+c)/2+c) p=(1.5a+0.5c)/(0.5a+1.5c) p=(3a+c)/(a+3c)S_{1}=((a+c)/2+c)h/2 \ \\ S_{2}=((a+c)/2+a)h/2 \ \\ p=S_{2}:S_{1}=((a+c)/2+a)/ ((a+c)/2+c) \ \\ p=(1.5a+0.5c)/(0.5a+1.5c) \ \\ p=(3a+c)/(a+3c)



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
