The area of a trapezoid is calculated by multiplying the area of one of its legs (a) by the height of its other leg (h) and then subtracting the area of the other leg (b) by the height of its first leg (h).

The area of a trapezoid is the number of unit squares that can fit into it. Area of trapezoid calculator is an online tool that helps to find the area of a trapezoid. If the certain parameters such as the value of base or height is available we can directly give the inputs and calculate the area. Try now Cuemath's Area of a Trapezoid Calculator and calculate the area of a trapezoid within a few seconds. For more practice check out area of trapezoid worksheets and solve the problems with the help of calculator. Consider a trapezoid of bases 'a' and 'b', and height 'h'. We can cut a triangular-shaped portion from the trapezoid and attach it at the bottom so that the entire trapezoid is rearranged as a triangle. Then the triangle obtained has the base (a + b) and height h. By applying the area of a triangle formula, the area of the trapezoid (or triangle) = ½ (a + b) h. For more information, you can refer to How to Derive Area of Trapezoid Formula? section of this page. (Source:

If the side lengths of an isosceles trapezoid are given, then we will divide it into two congruent right triangles and a rectangle. We find the areas of each of these shapes and add them which gives the area of the given trapezoid. You can see this in detail in Example 2 under the "solved examples" section of this page. If the height of the trapezoid is not given and all its sides are given instead, then we will divide it into two congruent right triangles and a rectangle. We find the areas of each of these shapes and add them which gives the area of the given trapezoid. You can see this in detail in Example 2 under the "solved examples" section of this page.
