Trapezoid - intersection of diagonals

In the ABCD trapezoid is AB = 8 cm long, trapezium height 6 cm, and distance of diagonals intersection from AB is 4 cm. Calculate the trapezoid area.

Correct answer:

S =  36 cm2

Step-by-step explanation:

a=8 cm h=6 cm h1=4 cm  h2=hh1=64=2 cm a:c = h1:h2 c=a h1h2=8 42=48 2=416=4 cm  S=2a+c h=28+4 6=36 cm2
