Area should be 4*4 + 0.5*4*1 = 18

We have a trapezoid with height OP and bases OR and PQ

Length of PQ
∆ OPQ is right isosceles with equal sides OP and PQ

--The angle at P is 90°

PQ || OR. The two segments are cut by traversal OP. Same-side interior angles sum to 180.
∠ POR = 90, hence the angle at P is also 90

-- ∠ PQO = 45. Parallel lines are cut by the traversal OQ, and ∠ QOR = 45. As an alternate interior angle, ∠ PQO also = 45°

-- ∠ POQ is 45: the right angle at vertex O has one angle marked as 45°; 90 - 45 = 45 = ∠ POQ

--OP = PQ: sides opposite equal angles of a triangle are equal

--OP = 4 = PQ, which is one base of the trapezoid

Height, other base, and area

The height of the trapezoid is OP = 4 (Height is perpendicular to base; OP is perpendicular to OR and PQ.)

The other base is OR = 5

Area of trapezoid: \(\frac{(base_1 + base_2)}{2} * h\)

\((\frac{4 + 5}{2}) * 4 = (4.5 * 4)=
18\)

Answer C

Hi Bunuel,

Coordinates of R needs to be changed from (0,5) to (5,0) .
