The sides 2

The sides of a trapezoid are in the ratio 2:5:8:5. The trapezoid’s area is 245. Find the height and the perimeter of the trapezoid.

Correct answer:

h =  14
o =  70

Step-by-step explanation:

a:b:c:d=2:5:8:5 a=8x b=d=5x c=2x ac  S=245  h=d2((ac)/2)2 h=x 52((82)/2)2  h=x 52((82)/2)2 h=x 16 h=4x  S=a+c2h S=8x+2x2h S=8x+2x2 4x S=5x 4x x=S/20=245/20=72=312=3.5  h=4 x=4 3.5=14
a=8 x=8 3.5=28 b=5 x=5 3.5=352=1712=17.5 d=5 x=5 3.5=352=1712=17.5 c=2 x=2 3.5=7  S1=a+c2 h=28+72 14=245 S1=S  o=a+b+c+d=28+17.5+7+17.5=70
