Question

Heidi hikes two trails, the Big Trapezoid and the Little Trapezoid. The shorter base of the Big Trapezoid is 2 mi long, while the longer base is 8 mi. The longer base of the Little Trapezoid is 4 mi long. The trails are similar shapes.

What is the length of the shorter base of the Little Trapezoid trail?

2 Answer

  • if the shapes are similar and the smaller trapezoid's long base is half of the big trapezoid's long base than that means that the small trapezoid's short base would be half of the big trapezoid's short base.

    Answer: The Little Trapezoid's shorter base is 1 mi long.
