# area and perimeter of trapezium in java

Let’s learn area and perimeter of trapezium in java.

## area and perimeter of trapezium in java

Trapezium is a quadrilateral with one pair of its sides parallel.

To calculate area of trapezium formula is:

area = ½ (sum of length of parallel sides) x perpendicular distance between parallel sides

To calculate perimeter of trapezium formula is:

perimeter = a + b + c +d

where a, b, c and d are sides of trapezium.

Now let’s see java program.

```import java.util.*;
public class AreaAndPerimeterOfTrapezium
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
float a = 6;
float b = 14;
float c = 10;
float d = 5;
float h = 21;
float area = (float) (0.5 * (a + b) * h);
// a, b, c and d are sides of trapezium
float perimeter = a + b + c + d;
System.out.println("area of trapezium is: " + area);
System.out.println("perimeter of trapezium is: " + perimeter);
}
}

```

Output:

area of trapezium is: 210.0
perimeter of trapezium is: 35.0
