Program to calculate area and perimeter of Trapezium
• Last Updated : 22 Mar, 2021

A trapezium is a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides, other two sides may not be parallel. The parallel sides are called the bases of the trapezium and the other two sides are called it’s legs. The perpendicular distance between parallel sides is called height of trapezium. Formula :

```Area of Trapezium : 0.5 * (a + b) * h
Perimeter of Trapezium : a + b + c + d```

Examples :

```Input :  a = 5, b = 6, c = 4, d = 3, h = 8
Output : Area of Trapezium : 44
Perimeter of Trapezium : 18

Input :  a = 10, b = 15, c = 14, d = 11, h = 21
Output : Area of Trapezium: 262.5
Perimeter of Trapezium: 50```

Below is the implementation of above formula :

## C++

 `// CPP program to find area``// and perimeter of trapezium``#include ``using` `namespace` `std;` `// Function to calculate Area of trapezium``float` `areaTrapezium(``float` `a, ``float` `b, ``float` `h)``{``    ``return` `(1.0 / 2 * (a + b) * h);``}` `// Function to calculate perimeter of trapezium``float` `perimeterTrapezium(``float` `a, ``float` `b, ``float` `c,``                                           ``float` `d)``{``    ``return` `(a + b + c + d);``}` `// Driver function``int` `main()``{``    ``float` `a = 5, b = 15, c = 11, d = 4, h = 20;``    ``cout << ``"Area of Trapezium = "` `<<``                ``areaTrapezium(a, b, h) << endl;``    ``cout << ``"Perimeter of Trapezium = "` `<<``                ``perimeterTrapezium(a, b, c, d);``    ``return` `0;``}`
