The area of a parallelogram ABCD is 24. Point E is the midpoint of side CD. Find the area of the trapezoid ABED? and got a better answer

Response from **. It is necessary to draw a line parallel to AD through E. Then the area of the resulting parallelograms is 12 each. And then B divides the parallelogram into 2 equal triangles with areas of 6. The area of the trapezoid is equal to the sum of the two areas of 12 and 6?**

. You have to draw a line parallel to AD through E. Then the area of the obtained parallelograms is 12 each. And then BE divides the parallelogram into 2 equal triangles with areas of 6. The area of the trapezium is equal to the sum of the two areas of 12 and 6.
