#### Question

Mohan wants to buy a trapezium shaped field. Its side along the river is parallel to and twice the side along the road. It the area of this field is 10500 m^{2} and the perpendicular distance between the two parallel sides is 100 m, find the length of the side along the river.

#### Solution

Let the length of the field along the road be *l *m. Hence, the length of the field along the river will be 2*l* m.

Area of trapezium = `1/2` (Sum of parallel sides) (Distance between the parallel sides)

=>10500 `m^2 = 1/2 (l + 2l) xx (100 m)`

3l = `((2 xx 10500)/100)m = 210 m`

l = 70 m

Thus, length of the field along the river = (2 × 70) m = 140 m

Is there an error in this question or solution?
