See the step by step solution

## Step 1. Given information.

The figure is given below as, ## Step 2. Formula used.

The formula of area of trapezoid is defined as,

$\text{Area}=\frac{1}{2}×\left(\text{Sum of parallel sides}\right)×\text{Height}$

## Step 3. Calculation.

Substitute the given values in the formula to find the remaining base.

$\begin{array}{c}\text{Area}=\frac{1}{2}×\left(18+14\right)×12\\ =\frac{1}{2}×32×12\\ =192{\text{ft}}^{2}\end{array}$

## Step 4. Conclusion.

Therefore, the required area is$192{\text{ft}}^{2}$. ### Want to see more solutions like these?
