#### Question

Find the sum of the lengths of the bases of a trapezium whose area is 4.2 m2 and whose height is 280 cm.

#### Solution

Given:
Area of the trapezium = 4.2 m2
Height = 280 cm $=\frac{280}{100}m = 2.8 m$
Area of trapezium$= \frac{1}{2} \times(\text{ Sum of the parallel bases })\times(\text{ Height })$
$4.2 =\frac{1}{2}\times(\text{ Sum of the parallel bases })\times2.8$
$4 . 2 \times 2 = (\text{ Sum of the parallel bases })\times2.8$
$\text{ Sum of the parallel bases }= \frac{8 . 4}{2 . 8} = 3 m$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
