8 : C Program to Calculate Area of Trapezoid

Check out the complete list of c-programs : C Program List    

You need to know the Breadth 1, Breadth 2 and Height of to Trapezoid to calculate the area.

Variables :

1. b1 : (Datatype int) : to represent the breadth 1 of Trapezoid.

2. b2 : (Datatype int) : to represent the breadth 2 of Trapezoid.

3. height : (Datatype long) : to represent the height of Trapezoid.

4. area_of_trapezoid : (Datatype long) : to store the result of area of the Trapezoid being computed.

Functions :

printf() : is used to display something on the console/screen. Format specifier %d in printf function is used to display a int variable on screen and %ld for long. \n is used to add a newline

scanf() : is used to fetch data inputted by the user on the console/screen using keyboard. %d in scanf is indicates that inputted text is of type int and %ld for long.

Formula :

Area of Trapezoid : (height/2) x (b1 + b2);
