Step by Step Solution

Step 1. Given information.

The height is 2 feet and one bases is three times to height, and other base is four times to height.

Step 2. Formula used.

The formula of area of trapezoid is defined as,

Area=12×Sum of parallel sides×Height

Step 3. Calculation.

Find the both base by using height.

b1=3×height=32=6 feet


b2=4×height=42=8 feet

Substitute the values in the area formula.

Area=126+8×2=12×14×2=14 feet2

Step 4. Conclusion.

Therefore, the required area is14 feet2.
