A trapezoid has an area of 493 meters squared, a height of 17m, and a base of 22m. Find the length of the other base. Show all work for credit.

A trapezoid is a quadrilateral (has 4 sides) and has only one pair of sides parallel.
How to determine the area of a trapezoid:
* Add the lengths of the 2 parallel sides
* divide by 2 to get the average length of the [ [ parallel sides.
* Multiply this by the height (distance between the parallel sides

User: A square pyramid has a base with a perimeter of 24 inches and a height of 4 inches. Find the surface area and volume of the pyramid. Show all work for credit.

Weegy: The lateral area is the perimeter of the base times the height, (5 + 12 + 13)(14). I'll let you do the arithmetic.
BTW this is just the sum of the areas of 3 rectangles that form the sides of the prism: (5)(14) + (12)(14) + (13)(14).
