Square prism

Calculate the volume of a foursided prism 2 dm high, the base is a trapezoid with bases 12 cm, 6 cm, height of 4 cm and 5 cm long arms.

Correct answer:

V =  0.72 dm3

Step-by-step explanation:

h=2 dm a=12 cm dm=12/10  dm=1.2 dm c=6 cm dm=6/10  dm=0.6 dm v=4 cm dm=4/10  dm=0.4 dm  S=(a+c) v/2=(1.2+0.6) 0.4/2=925=0.36 dm2  V=S h=0.36 2=1825=1825 dm3=0.72 dm3
