## Program to find the area and perimeter of trapezium

In this article, we will see the programs to find the area and perimeter of the trapezium in different programming languages.

But before writing the programs, let's first see a brief description of the trapezium and the formulae to find its area and perimeter.

## Trapezium

The trapezium (also called trapezoid) is a geometrical shape that includes four sides in which a pair of opposite sides is parallel. The parallel sides are known as base, and the non-parallel sides are known as leg. The parallel sides can be horizontal, vertical, or slanting (diagonal).

It is a convex quadrilateral shape. It means that a closed shape with four sides along with one pair of parallel sides.

The representation of the trapezium is shown in the below image - ### Area of trapezium

The formula for finding the area of the trapezium are given as follows -

### Perimeter of trapezium

The perimeter of a trapezium is the sum of all its sides. The formula for finding the perimeter of the trapezium with sides AB, BC, CD, and DA are given as follows -

If AB = a, BC = b, CD = c, DA = d, the perimeter of trapezium will be -

Now, let's see the programs to find the area and perimeter of the trapezium.

### Programs to find the area and perimeter of trapezium

In the programs, we are using the following formulae to calculate the area and perimeter of trapezium -
