### What is the area of the trapezoid 14 12 8 inches?

Area = 1/2 x sum_of_lengths_of_parallel_sides x distance_between_them If 14 in and 12 in are the parallel sides and 8 in is the distance between them: Area = 1/2 x (14 in + 12 in) x 8 in = 104 in2 If 14 in and 8 in are the parallel sides and 12 in is the distance between them: Area = 1/2 x (14 in + 8 in) x 12 in = 132 in2 If 12…

### How do you write exponents?

You write exponents by multiplying a number by itself. Some examples: 75 = 7 to the 5th power, which means 7 multiplied by itself 5 times: 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 = 16,807 83 = 8 to the 3rd power, which means 8 multiplied by itself 3 times: 8 x 8 x 8 = 512 126 = 12 to the 6th power, which means 12 multiplied by itself 6 times: 12…
