# Find the area of a rectangular trapezoid with bases of 3 and 7 and an obtuse angle of 135 degrees.

| Let us draw the height of CH from the top of the obtuse angle.

A quadrangle ABCН is a rectangle, then BC = AH = 3 cm, then the segment DH = AD – AH = 7 – 3 = 4 m.

In a right-angled triangle СНD, the angle СНD = 90, then the angle DСН = 135 – 90 = 45.

Angle СDН = DCН = 45, then triangle СDН is isosceles, СН = DH = 4 cm.

Determine the area of the triangle.

S = (BC + AD) * CH / 2 = (3 + 7) * 4/2 = 20 cm2.

Answer: The area of the trapezoid is 20 cm2.
