In order to get the area of the trapezoid, we have the formula:

Area = \frac{1}{2}(base1+base2)*height

Check the attached photo for reference. (sorry if it looks weird)

Now that we know that:
base1= 18
base2= 36
height= 12

Plug-in those values to our formula and we will be able to get an answer for the area.

Now, for the perimeter, we cannot use the formula a+b+c+d because we do not know the values for the inclined sides of the trapezoid. Therefore, we use this:

Perimeter= base1+base2+height( \frac{1}{sin(base1)}+ \frac{1}{sin(base2)} )

Again, plug-in the values that we got in order to get a value for the perimeter.

Good luck!
