Solution

The given figure is:

Lengths of the parallel sides are 1.2 m and 1 m and the perpendicular distance between them is 0.8 m.

∴ Area of the trapezium shaped surface \[=\frac{1}{2}\times(\text{ Sum of the parallel sides })\times(\text{ Perpendicular distance })\]

\[ = \frac{1}{2} \times (1 . 2 + 1) \times (0 . 8)\]

\[=\frac{1}{2}\times2.2\times0.8\]

\[ {=0.88 m}^2\]
