# Find the area of a trapezium whose parallel sides are 9 cm and 6 cm respectively and the distance between these sides is 8 cm.

Given

AB = a = 9 cm

DC = b = 6 cm

Height (h) = 8 cm

We know that area of trapezium is x (sum of parallel sides) x height

Therefore, Area of trapezium ABCD = x (AB + DC) x h = x (9 + 6) x 8 = 60 cm2

Area of Trapezium ABCD = 60cm2
