# Python Math: Calculate the area of a trapezoid

## Python Math: Exercise-3 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the area of a trapezoid.

Note: A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with two sides parallel. The trapezoid is equivalent to the British definition of the trapezium. An isosceles trapezoid is a trapezoid in which the base angles are equal so.

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
base_1 = 5
base_2 = 6
height = float(input("Height of trapezoid: "))
base_1 = float(input('Base one value: '))
base_2 = float(input('Base two value: '))
area = ((base_1 + base_2) / 2) * height
print("Area is:", area)
```

Sample Output:

Height of trapezoid: 6 Base one value: 10 Base two value: 5 Area is: 45.0
