How To Find The Perimeter Of A Trapezoid
Let's look at the geometric details of
a trapezoid. But first, please review the definition of Perimeter Of Two-Dimensional Shapes.
- Opposite side L1 and L2 are parallel but may or may NOT be the same length. See the diagram below.
- Opposite side W1 and W2 may NOT be parallel.
- Special note, all sides of an must be greater than zero.
Perimeter Of A Trapezoid Formula
Formula = Length1 + Width1 + Length2 + Width2 =
Formula = L1 + W1 + L1 + W2
