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

Python: Tips of the Day

Getting rid of unwanted characters:

You can get rid of whitespaces or any specific character using strip methods in Python. You can use either plain strip for both sides, lstrip for the left side and rstrip for the right side only.

str="+++Welcome python+++"
str.strip()

print(str)

Output:

+++Welcome python+++
