# The area of a trapezium shaped field is 480 m^{2}. The distance between two parallel sides is 15 m and one of the parallel sides is 20 m. Find the other parallel side.

Answer :

Given:

Area of Trapezium = 480 m^{2}

Distance between parallel sides = 15 m

One parallel Side = 20 m

Formula for area of trapezium,

Let the length of other side be x

960 = 300 + 15 x

660 = 15 x

Hence, length of other side is 44 m.
