| From the condition it is known that the bases of the trapezoid are 6.7 cm and 4.3 cm, and we also know the height of the triangle 0.5 cm.

In order to find the area of a trapezoid, let’s recall the formula for finding the area of a trapezoid through the height and base of the trapezoid.

S = 1/2 * h * (a + b).

The area of the trapezoid is equal to the product of the height and the half-sum of the bases.

We just have to substitute the known values and write down the answer.

Substitute and calculate:

S = 1/2 * 0.5 * (6.7 + 4.3) = 1/4 * 11 = 2.75 cm2.

The area of the trapezoid is 2.75 cm2.

Answer: S = 215 cm2.
